Coronavirus (COVID-19) information
January 20, 2022
As we begin the spring 2022 semester, we find ourselves still facing the challenges of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant. While the Wyandotte County Health Department has lifted the mask mandate, we encourage you to make a personal decision about masking while on campus.
To decrease the spread of COVID-19 on campus, I ask that you follow CDC guidelines and complete the COVID-19 Incident Report Form so we can accurately track cases on campus. Read more from the CDC website here.
Stay safe Dragons!

The Unified Government voted last week to rescind the mask mandate for Wyandotte County: https://www.kansascity.com/news/coronavirus/article256670647.html
While the Health Department still recommends wearing a mask for your own safety, it is your own personal choice to mask or unmask while inside Donnelly facilities. More updates on the Omicron variant coming soon.

Last night the Unified Government in Wyandotte County extended the mask mandate through January 6, 2022. As always, Donnelly College will follow these guidelines. See below for more information from the KC Star.

The mask mandate related to COVID 19 has updated in Wyandotte County. In light of this development, effective immediately, you are required to wear a mask indoors while on campus . This step is being taken to protect the health and well-being of all those in our community.
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for Donnelly College.

Hard to believe, but we are already past the halfway point of the spring semester. Lots of work yet to do, but today I would like to look forward a bit and share our plans for the summer and fall.
Some of our faculty and staff are already vaccinated, while others are working on securing their appointments. As of March 22, 1,018,146 does have been administered in Kansas. This includes first and second doses, so we are well on our way to a healthier Kansas! https://www.kansasvaccine.gov/
Based off these encouraging trends, we are now planning for a “back to normal” fall semester. This includes full class sizes, student organization activities and events, and other related in-person functions and activities. This transition will get underway starting this summer as we keep an eye on our vaccination availability and progress, which will inevitably allow us to open more activities as warranted. Already, we are allowing events on campus, following safety protocols.
While things may never be the same as they were before, we expect to achieve some level of normalcy, including classrooms and workplaces at their usual capacity. Our quad should be complete and ready to use by mid-June and we are making plans to maximize that space as well.
For now, we will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols, and anticipate doing so through summer classes. Registration for fall semester is now open, so please meet with your Advisors to enroll in our exciting fall academic course offerings.
