Safety Measures for a Visit to Campus

Central has worked diligently to provide the safest experience possible for our visitors. We kindly encourage the use of the following guidelines when visiting campus:

  • Visitors need to be free of COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Pack hand sanitizer and use it often. We also will have hand sanitizer on hand for your convenience.
  • Masks are required in indoor public spaces and outdoors when six-foot physical distances cannot be maintained. Visitors may bring their own mask. The college also will have some available for use. Central’s admission counselors will wear a mask when meeting with visitors.
  • Maintain a physical distance of six feet with other people.
  • When you arrive, we will welcome you warmly and show you where to safely receive your materials.
  • Although we’re cleaning high-traffic areas frequently, please avoid contact with high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, drinking fountains, etc.
