Help Us Stay Safe, to Stay Open
UPDATE: 11/10/2020

Many of you have reached out to Davis Tech with questions about the Governor’s executive order. Here’s what we know so far.

Governor Gary Herbert and the Utah Department of Health have released executive and public health orders requiring all college and university students who attend in-person classes to be tested for COVID-19 each week beginning as soon as possible, but no later than January 1, 2021 (see https://coronavirus.utah.gov/).

We are working closely with the Utah Department of Health and the Utah System of Higher Education to give Davis Tech students and employees access to this quick, free testing as soon as possible. By testing regularly, students can stay safe, protect others, and continue coming to campus for hands-on learning.

We will provide more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, here are a few things we can all do to make a difference:

  • Wear a mask. Utahns are required to wear a mask in public and around anyone they don’t live with.
  • Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer regularly.
  • Disinfect surfaces you regularly come in contact with.
  • Avoid close contact with others.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

We look forward to adding rapid testing to our toolkit to slow the spread and keep our community safe.

Thank you all for your efforts.

Dear Davis Tech community,

With coronavirus cases surging in Utah, and our hospital ICUs reaching capacity, it is critical that we not become complacent in preventing the spread of the virus. Davis and Morgan counties are currently considered high transmission areas for the virus. At Davis Tech, staying open and providing a safe learning environment is our highest priority. To that end, we want to take a moment to remind you of the simple, yet effective things you can do to guard against transmission of coronavirus.

  1. Wear a mask
  2. Wash your hands frequently, and use sanitizer
  3. Avoid touching your face
  4. Stay home if you are sick or have symptoms such as fever, cough, breathlessness, sore throat, no sense of smell or taste, headaches, and muscle aches and pains
  5. Keep physical distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and others, even when wearing a mask
  6. Take extra precautions if you are a high-risk individual, or when around others who are high-risk
  7. Avoid clustering in groups, and socialize responsibly when around others
  8. Limit gatherings to fewer than 10 people in high transmission regions/areas
  9. If you have been exposed to someone with coronavirus, get tested and quarantine until you can safely be around others
  10. Follow state and local health guidelines, and utilize information provided at coronavirus.utah.gov

It is important that we share the responsibility to not share the virus. With Halloween this weekend, and the holidays to come, please be safe and actively work to prevent transmission.

We are excited to see students returning to campus, and want to make sure that your experience is safe and rewarding for everyone. Please read this letter to make sure you understand the expectations and requirements while on campus.

We appreciate everyone’s effort to keep our campus safe and respect the rights of others to teach and be taught in a safe learning environment.

The events this year have been unprecedented, and we appreciate your resilience during these difficult times. Beginning in early March, Davis Tech implemented measures that kept us open for students and allowed flexibility to help our students navigate online and unique classroom circumstances. As we continue to adjust to our new normal, we will be moving back to the standards that will ensure we are meeting federal and Council of Education guidelines at Davis Tech.

Beginning Monday, July 27 the following measures will be reinstituted:

  • Davis Tech is resuming normal guidelines for student attendance. Attendance will now be taken based on student’s attendance in a lab, clinical, or face-to-face instruction, or on progress made in Canvas and in Northstar
  • Students completing online content may continue to make progress
  • Fees will be assessed as normal in Student Services. These will include course extension, re-enrollment, retake fees and tuition
  • Course extensions will no longer be extended indefinitely. If extensions are needed they will be the normal 5 days, and at the student’s expense. Extenuating circumstances requiring longer extensions, such as catastrophic occurrences will be applied on a case by case basis and will be available for students affected by COVID-19

Please reach out to your program assistants (below) or your instructors to re-activate your course or training plan, or if you have any questions.

Dear Davis Tech students,

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had any significant updates, but with new guidance issued from our state and local officials, here’s what to expect at Davis Tech in the coming weeks:

  • Online learning will continue, but beginning on May 4 if students need to complete hands-on coursework/skills testing in their classrooms they can schedule a time with their instructor.
  • We want students to progress within their programs, but safety is our top priority. All students and staff on the Davis Tech campus are required to wear masks, which can be provided if needed.
  • It is important that we have no extra visitors on campus, including family members or children. We also ask that students do not congregate, and that students stay within their program area as much as possible. This means parking and entering at the entrance closest to their program.
  • Student services, advising, and financial aid services are still available via phone and email.
  • Everyone on campus will be practicing social distancing. Signs have been placed throughout campus to remind students of proper distancing and other safety precautions. Hand sanitizing stations are also available throughout campus.
  • The café will be open with limited grab-and-go items available, including drinks.
  • The bookstore will also be open, but only allowing 10 people in at a time. They will also only be taking credit/debit card or AR Transactions.
  • Davis Tech is currently enrolling, with most programs starting with online learning.

 We look forward to seeing everyone on campus again. Until then, be well and safe.

As part of the efforts to manage the spread of COVID-19, Governor Herbert and State Superintendent Dickson announced this on Friday the dismissal of all Utah K-12 public school students from school for two weeks, beginning Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th.

Similarly, all Utah Technical Colleges were directed on Saturday by their Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Governor's Office and State Health Department, to implement a partial closure for the coming two weeks. This means that, during this period, Davis Technical College is suspending face-to-face instruction, and will deliver online instruction to the fullest extent possible, beginning Wednesday, March 18th. Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th will be used as non-student days for faculty and staff to prepare and to contact all students to explain how this applies to their specific programs of study.

Davis Tech expects that all of its facilities will be open throughout the two-week period, and all student services will be available. Please check this page for ongoing updates.

Sincerely,
Darin Brush, President

Davis Technical College to Continue Regular Operations: Safety and Preventative Measures Heightened

Kaysville – Today Governor Herbert announced heighten safety and preventative measures at Utah education institutions and schools, and the Davis Technical College is supporting those measures to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus by taking precautionary actions to ensure the health and safety of its students and community.

Davis Tech has not suspended classes at this time and will continue with regular operations with enhanced actions and monitoring, as the hands-on technical nature of its course curriculum and labs limit other delivery methods. The College is limiting large gatherings on their campuses and limiting business travel where appropriate and encouraging telecommunications and videoconferencing. Davis Tech is also taking a supportive approach with students and staff when it comes to absences.

As Davis Tech continues to monitor conditions, preventative measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are encouraged for Davis Tech students, staff and wider community, and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Stay home when sick and consider staying home when a family member in the home is sick
  • Practice heightened hygiene, including frequent handwashing and avoiding touching the face
  • Use hand sanitizer and avoid handshaking
  • Practice social distancing and limit interaction in groups

Davis Tech continues to work with state and local health officials, as well as local school districts, to ensure the safety of its campus community. This page will be updated as the situation evolves.
