Reminder: social distancing guidelines still in place; students should not be gathering in large groups

Per CDC recommendations, everyone should still be practicing social distancing guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19. This means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home.

Students should not be gathering in large groups and are advised to avoid crowded places. If you do have to be near someone outside your home, be sure to stay at least six feet apart and wear a mask (or cloth facial covering) when around other people or in public — especially if you are participating in a protest among a large crowd.

In addition to everyday steps to prevent COVID-19, keeping space between you and others is one of the best tools to avoid being exposed to this virus and slowing its spread locally and across the country and world.

Limit close contact with others outside your household in indoor and outdoor spaces. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is important to stay away from others when possible, even if you—or they—have no symptoms. Social distancing is especially important for people who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
