Ferris/KCAD Response

If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks past your final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine) you are no longer required to wear a mask. Those vaccinated may continue to wear a mask if they choose to. Those who are not fully vaccinated please wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth if you are unable to maintain 6ft social distance from others. All employees are being asked to continue to complete the daily symptom checker and to stay home if they are not feeling well.

KCAD and Ferris are committed to the health and safety of our campus community and look forward to welcoming students back to campus for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year

Do Your Part! Report A Positive Test Result

It is critical to report a positive test result so KCAD can take measures to protect the campus community. Even if you are not exhibiting symptoms and feel fine, it is important that you report a positive test result. Your information will not be shared with the general public, but KCAD is required to report the number of positive cases.

KCAD students: All of us—students, faculty, and staff—will need to be flexible and adaptable, and more importantly, we will need to practice empathy and understanding toward one another. As we work together to navigate the ongoing impact of COVID-19, we want to be sure our efforts are focused on understanding and addressing your needs as well as ensuring our campus remains a safe and healthy learning environment.

If you need assistance, have questions, or would like to share your concerns or comments, please contact us via our Ask KCAD feedback portal.
