Update from the Provost: 8/27
August 28, 2020
Dear Students and Families,
It is great to see so many faces (properly masked) on campus! We are so excited to have you back. Please be sure to continue to wear your mask properly.
Please make sure you wear your mask at all times while in classrooms and indoor common spaces (including hallways).
Please wear your mask outdoors if you will be close to other people, such as when you walk on sidewalks to and from buildings or at gathering places.
Please make sure your mask covers your mouth AND nose as you wear it. It doesn’t really work otherwise J.
And finally, studies suggest that LAYERS are important in the effectiveness of masks. Therefore, single layer covers, such as neck gaiters, are likely not effective. Additionally, our campus policy does not allow for masks with vents.
Keep up the good work!
Travel: With a holiday weekend approaching, I wanted to remind you that if you travel by mass transit (plane, train, or bus), we will require that you self-quarantine. If at all possible, please avoid using these forms of travel.
