Social distancing will remain a best practice.  Handwashing and hand sanitizer will be used throughout the day.  Disinfection of the facility and buses will continue as before.  As in years past, we are asking students, faculty and staff who are sick to stay home especially if the person is feverish, has a persistent cough, and/or has lost taste and smell.

The following are considered Best Practices when possible:
