Over the next few months, as events unfold, our goal is to keep you informed. With each day, we learn more about COVID-19, its ability to spread, and severity of symptoms in a variety of individuals. State Tech is confident it can resume near normal operations this summer and fall but is prepared to continue operations in a variety of conditions.
The guidelines below represent our plan, as of today, to provide a safe learning environment for our students both now and into the fall. These guidelines could change as local, state, and national COVID-19 guidelines evolve.

Until Further Notice State Tech Students Will:
Returning to Classes
The following outlines a progression of scenarios State Tech could pursue should it be determined necessary to assure the well-being of both students and employees.
(Scenario 1) The risk of exposure to COVID-19 is minimal, and large group congregation without social distancing is acceptable.
(Scenario 2) The risk of exposure to COVID-19 is minimal, but large group congregations are not recommended.
(Scenario 3) The risk of exposure to COVID-19 is still minimal, but social distancing rules apply.
(Scenario 4) Increasing number of COVID-19 cases (resurgence), and strict social distancing guidelines necessitate that a progressive approach is required to keep campus open. That would mean scenario 3 plus:
(Scenario 5) An active case of the COVID-19 has been detected on campus.
We look forward to welcoming students back to campus while complying with relevant guidelines.
