Mask Up, Wolves Up

                                  

The A-State Community is encouraged to remember the importance of wearing your masks. The wearing of masks is required when entering campus build- ings and in public spaces where physical distancing is not possible.

In many locations throughout the campus, seating in common place areas have been rearranged, maximum occupancy signage has been placed on bathrooms, elevators, meeting rooms, classrooms, offices and lounge spaces. In addition, six foot distance markers have been placed on the floors.

Students and employees are asked to help maintain furniture configurations and abide by the signage in each building and room. Following these measures is a vital step toward allowing campus activities and face-to-face classes to continue as the fall semester approaches.

Chancellor Kelly Damphousse addressed these issues as well as others in an email that can be found at the following link:
