Please check back regularly for any updates.
It has been a year since our operations were altered. Through this pandemic, many of us have been directly impacted by experiencing loss, financial difficulties, and uncertainty. We hope that you and your loved ones are continuing to stay safe and working through these challenging times.
Through this pandemic, Western Tech has been working diligently to adjust, implement guidelines, and develop plans that would allow us to continue delivering our services in a safe environment. We have asked for your patience and cooperation and have appreciated your support and understanding. We knew that these adjustments were not going to be easy, however, we have managed to work through these changes together, the Western Tech way.
By now, you may be aware that as of March 10, 2021, Governor Abbot is lifting the statewide Covid-19 safety protocols, to include lifting the requirement to wear a mask or face shield, and businesses are also able to operate at 100% capacity. At Western Tech, the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and guests has been and will continue to be our top priority.
Although the protocol is being lifted, we will continue to take precautions and require all individuals to wear a mask/shield while inside the buildings and maintain the same building capacity. Also, we will resume to take temperatures and ask symptomatic questions upon entering the buildings. We also encourage everyone to continue to maintain social distancing, wash hands frequently, and utilize hand sanitizers throughout the facilities to alleviate the spread of Covid-19.
We must continue to implement the safety guidelines prescribed by medical professionals and CDC guidelines until more members of the community have access to the Covid-19 vaccines.
Lastly, if you are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, contact your instructor. Please stay home, contact your healthcare provider, and do not come or visit the school. As a reminder, symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea. If your symptoms have not improved seek medical attention immediately. We also remind you to follow protocol in notifying your immediate instructor (supervisor for employees) so that we can track active cases.
We will continue to monitor the current pandemic situation and we are looking forward to a safe and easy transition.
