Please remember the following as we start this session:
- Masks are required indoors and outdoors.
- If you refuse to wear a mask, you are subject to discipline under the Student Code of Conduct or personnel action.
- Do not come to class or work if you have symptoms, have received a positive COVID-19 test result, or are waiting on test results.
- You will not be penalized for following University guidelines. Professors and supervisors will provide appropriate accommodations, including make-up work and accessible course materials.
- The limit on gatherings is 50 people with appropriate physical distancing.
- If you have symptoms and want to get tested, please consult with your general healthcare provider or call Tech Care at 318.257.4866.
