Social Distancing

Please note - when using college facilities (or any public spaces), it is wise to practice "social distancing". This means keeping a safe distance, more than 6 feet, from other people to avoid spread of illness. We appreciate your participation in maintaining space between people in our space.  Wear a mask while on campus.

The CDC suggests the following guidelines.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
