Social Distancing and Appropriate Protective Actions Are Required.

All persons on the campus are required to follow the established guidelines to prevent spreading the virus. Adherence to the guidelines is not optional; it is mandatory. Stay at least six feet away from other people. Do not, under any circumstances, come to campus if you are sick; the only exception would be students who need to be seen at the Health Center. Please call ahead for an appointment. Use the hand sanitizers that are available, and wipe down any surfaces or equipment that you touch.

All other campus buildings (except for residential halls housing students) are closed, including the Student Recreation Center, Panzer Athletic Center, Sprague Library and Kasser Theater.
