COVID-19 Notice of Risk

 

As our goal is to safeguard the health and safety of the NGU community, this notice provides information we ask you to observe and understand regarding the COVID‐19 virus. Since the COVID‐19 virus is highly contagious and could be contracted from a variety of sources, our institution wants to ensure you are aware of the risks associated with visiting NGU. The COVID‐19 virus has a long incubation period; you or the campus staff may have the virus and not show symptoms and yet still be highly contagious. Due to the frequency and timing of visits by outside guests and the characteristics of the virus there is a risk of you contracting the COVID-19 virus simply by being on campus. Pursuant to statements from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, guests are encouraged to practice social distancing, engage in frequent handwashing, and to refrain from activities known to spread the virus. If you are running a fever, have a dry cough and experience shortness of breath, you are not permitted on campus. If you are running a fever and show other symptoms, you are also not permitted on campus. It should also be acknowledged that you could contract the COVID‐19 virus from outside this campus and unrelated to your visit to campus. If you are concerned that you may be exposed to the virus by visiting campus, you would be advised not to visit.

 

Guidelines:

 

  • Entrance – Guests will be directed to the Donnan Boulevard Entrance from the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. on Fridays.
  • Social Distancing – A distance of six feet will be maintained at all times whenever possible in the greeting, touring, and meeting processes. Traditional greetings such as handshakes and hugs will not be used, and physical contact will be avoided.
  • Greeting Process – Guests will be welcomed in Moore Hall of Hayes Ministry/Welcome Center. Tables, pens, and iPads used in the check-in process will be wiped down after each use by visiting families. Visitors will be asked to fill out a health questionnaire form to learn if they, or any member of their family is not feeling well or if they have had symptoms of COVID-19. Those who are experiencing these symptoms or similar symptoms will not tour the campus. Guests will be asked to sign a waiver/acknowledgment of risk.
  • Use of Personal Protective Equipment – At check-in, the visiting family will be asked for their preference in the use of personal protective equipment such as masks. Tour guides and Admissions team members who interact with the families will honor their preference throughout the visit. NGU will provide masks when requested.
  • “No-touch” Tours – A minimum of two tour guides will conduct the tours. Tour guides will use disinfectants before and after touching each door.
  • Tour Group Size – Tour groups will be limited to six people unless the number is exceeded because of a large family size.
  • Meetings with NGU Faculty and Staff While Visiting –  If you would like to visit with Admissions Counselors, Financial Aid Counselors, professors or coaches our outdoor areas such as the veranda behind Hayes Ministry/Welcome Center, the gazebo in the Joe Hayes, Jr. Rose Garden, and other outdoor seating areas will be used. In times of inclement weather, Moore Hall may be used in addition to classrooms.
  • Promotional Materials – All promotional materials such as brochures, handouts, etc. will be available for the visiting student to pickup at the check-in table
  • Scheduling – Tour groups will be scheduled more frequently throughout the day to allow for reduction in the size of tours. Large group tours will not be scheduled at this time. If you feel sick and/or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit campus.
  • Cleaning­ – Restrooms, door handles, and common surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected regularly. Visitors will use the large restroom facilities in Hayes Ministry/Welcome Center.
