Computer lab guidance:
We ask that you observe the following:
• The lab is only available for currently registered students. At this time, we are not able to have children or other individuals who are non-students enter the building with you.
• Bring your student ID with you. You will be asked when entering the building for your ID to verify that you are a student.
• You agree to observe social distancing recommendations of maintaining a minimum of 6-foot distance from others while using the lab.
• Be kind to staff members working who may give you direction. Staff are working hard to minimize the risk to you and themselves by observing MDH and CDC guidelines. At times, they may need to limit the number of students in the lab or remind students of social distancing requirements. Keep in mind, this isn’t personal, but they are doing what they can to keep us all safe.
