Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Please know that Clark State takes your health and wellness very seriously. Because of that, we have activated several emergency response initiatives. These include frequent internal and external communication, frequent calls with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Ohio Department of Health (ODH), county health districts and local emergency management professionals. As soon as new information is released, it will be communicated with our Clark State community immediately.

Effective health and wellness tips to minimize exposure and spread:
- If you are sick or have any (even mild) symptoms such as mild fever, cough, etc. please stay home. If these symptoms worsen please contact your nearest hospital or physician in advance and let them know you are coming with these symptoms.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, face, mouth, and nose
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as often as possible
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in your immediate area. Our physical plant has increased the level and strength of cleaning in all areas daily.
- An alcohol-based hand sanitizer should be seen as an extra layer of cleaning and should never be viewed as a replacement to frequent handwashing
