Personal Safety Requirements
Employees, students, and visitors are no longer required to wear a mask inside all Gateway facilities. You do not have to wear a mask, however, you are more than welcome to do so if that is your preference. We ask everyone be respectful of those who do choose to continue wearing a mask. Gateway encourages all who are not currently vaccinated to seek an appointment for vaccination. Find open appointments on the NKY Health Department’s website.
For your safety, you should wash your hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer after each equipment use. The facility will ensure that employees whose job duties include touching items often touched by others (e.g., credit cards/cash, paper, computers) wear gloves that are “regularly” replaced.
Continue to provide social distance and stand at a safe distance from people, particularly if they feel uncomfortable being close. Reconsider old customs such as shaking hands.
Social distancing is recommended in all classrooms, labs, shared offices, common spaces and other locations.
Signage has been posted at all facilities in the common areas such as bathrooms, cafes, lecture halls, classrooms, entrances, etc.
Follow CDC guidelines to stay safe and to keep others safe. You can find them here: When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated | CDC and Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People

As we see each other again in person, keep in mind that each person reacts differently to being in public spaces again. Some will welcome the interactions, while others will be nervous and even anxious. We ask that you be kind, considerate, patient, and understanding of the different reactions each of us might have to this process.
