Phase 2 of university's reopening plan starts Friday, May 22
Kansas Governor Laura Kelly modified Phase 2 of the "Ad Astra: A Plan to Reopen Kansas," which went into effect Friday, May 22. This allows Kansas State University to also modify and move to its Phase 2 reopening plan.
Gatherings are allowed up to 15 people provided individuals maintain social distancing and proper hygiene such as frequent hand-washing and covering coughs and sneezes. Employees are asked to regularly clean high-touch surfaces, avoid shaking hands and complete the EHS Slow the Spread training. Employees are encouraged to wear face masks when social distancing is not possible and continue working remotely as much as possible.
All employees who feel sick should follow public health officer's guidance. Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 10 days from the start of symptoms or until free from fever for 72 hours — whichever is longer. Anyone who is still waiting for test results must remain isolated. Anyone who has close contact with confirmed cases of COVID-19 must remain in quarantine for 14 days.
