Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

The College continues to closely monitor the dynamic situation regarding vaccination mandates, vaccinations, and isolation/quarantine guidelines.  At this time, we will continue to operate during the Fall semester as planned, based on current College guidelines and practices.  Because the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 are ever-changing, Owens leadership will communicate updates to College operations as soon as possible.

To learn more about COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 vaccines, faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to visit the Ohio Department of Health – COVID-19 website.

The COVID-19 Response Team reminds faculty, staff and students that if you are experiencing symptoms, are exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, you must complete the COVID-19 Notification Form. The COVID-19 Response Team appreciates your patience.  If you have questions or concerns related to this update and/or the College’s COVID-19 guidelines, policies and/or procedures, please contact the COVID-19 Response Team at  Please note, response time from the Response Team may be delayed if notifications or emails are sent during non-business hours, weekends and/or holidays.
