Items associated with Covid during Fall 2020


  • Face coverings
    • Face coverings (clothe material covering mouth and nose) are to be worn in the lab at all times except
      • if you are in the lab by yourself or at most one other person who is in the other side of the room
      • if you are eating (but once again, you need to be quite a distance from other folks).
    • Face shield
      • The shield by itself is not sufficient in most circumstances
      • If you will be working with someone looking at the same screen (including the instructor who might be helping you debug), ALSOwear your face shield
      • If you are in the front of the room presenting (or lecturing), you can remove the mask as long as you use a face shield.
      • There are hooks for your face shields. Return your shield to your hook when leaving the class. Do not touch anyone else's shield or hook.
  • Sanitizing
    • You are responsible for sanitizing your own space before using it. Use a cloth to wipe down the desk and chairs. The keyboards, and mice will be sanitized for you between classes. You will be shown in class how to sanitize the computer equipment when you are using it outside of class. Sanitize the equipment when down (outside of normal class hours)
    • Use the hand sanitizer on your hands upon entering the lab.
  • Physical Distancing
    • In class, you will have an "assigned" seat where you will sit for the entire semester. Please don't change.
    • For this semester only, do not use the front row until all other stations are full.
  • Equipment
    • Half the computers have been set aside and should not be used. They do not have keyboards or mice. Do not plug in a keyboard or mouse to these stations unless instructed to by your professor.
    • Avoid touch the screen with your hands. Use a pointing device (that has been sanitized) if necessary.
  • Professors' Offices
    • Wear face coverings when in an office.
    • Do not congregate outside an office.
    • Try to make appointments beforehand.
    • Zoom meetings are always a valid option.
