Dr. Federico Zaragoza, CSN President

The COVID-19 vaccination is the most powerful tool to combat the virus and to prevent its spread on our campuses and the broader community.  Each of us must take personal responsibility do our part for the safety and well-being of our family, friends, those you study with, live with, and work with.  In addition to being vaccinated, complete a health self-assessment daily prior to coming to campus, wear face coverings, practice handwashing while singing ‘Happy birthday to me’ song, and review the CSN Student COVID-19 Safety and Preparedness Guide .
