Dear Davis Tech Community,

As part of the efforts to manage the spread of COVID-19, Governor Herbert and State Superintendent Dickson announced this on Friday the dismissal of all Utah K-12 public school students from school for two weeks, beginning Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th.

Similarly, all Utah Technical Colleges were directed on Saturday by their Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Governor's Office and State Health Department, to implement a partial closure for the coming two weeks. This means that, during this period, Davis Technical College is suspending face-to-face instruction, and will deliver online instruction to the fullest extent possible, beginning Wednesday, March 18th. Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th will be used as non-student days for faculty and staff to prepare and to contact all students to explain how this applies to their specific programs of study.

Davis Tech expects that all of its facilities will be open throughout the two-week period, and all student services will be available. Please check this page for ongoing updates.

Sincerely,
Darin Brush, President
Davis Technical College

Davis Technical College to Continue Regular Operations: Safety and Preventative Measures Heightened

Kaysville – Today Governor Herbert announced heighten safety and preventative measures at Utah education institutions and schools, and the Davis Technical College is supporting those measures to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus by taking precautionary actions to ensure the health and safety of its students and community.

Davis Tech has not suspended classes at this time and will continue with regular operations with enhanced actions and monitoring, as the hands-on technical nature of its course curriculum and labs limit other delivery methods. The College is limiting large gatherings on their campuses and limiting business travel where appropriate and encouraging telecommunications and videoconferencing. Davis Tech is also taking a supportive approach with students and staff when it comes to absences.

As Davis Tech continues to monitor conditions, preventative measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are encouraged for Davis Tech students, staff and wider community, and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Stay home when sick and consider staying home when a family member in the home is sick
  • Practice heightened hygiene, including frequent handwashing and avoiding touching the face
  • Use hand sanitizer and avoid handshaking
  • Practice social distancing and limit interaction in groups

Davis Tech continues to work with state and local health officials, as well as local school districts, to ensure the safety of its campus community. This page will be updated as the situation evolves.
