SAIT Update 11.23.2020
Protect the herd
Help keep classes on schedule and people safe.
Don’t come to campus if:
- you’re feeling sick with any COVID-19 symptoms (seriously, even one symptom — stay home)
- a close contact has COVID-19 or is being tested for COVID-19 (someone in your household, roommate, teammate — see full definition)
- you have COVID-19 or you’re being tested for COVID-19
Be honest on your Daily Campus Access Form.
If you’re worried about missing lab time due to illness, don’t be. We’ll work with you to make it up.
Your actions have impact. Following these guidelines protects you, your class and your families. Not following the guidelines puts people at risk and forces classes to be cancelled.
The safety of our community is important and it takes all of us to protect it.
