Covid-19 precautions:

In order to accommodate folks, we are planning to have the event available simultaneously via webinar.

Virtual participation is encouraged.

In-person participants will be asked to mask and social distance.

Stay home if you are sick.

Vaccine boosters are encouraged.

WSU will provide hand sanitizer at entrances and a limited supply of disposable medical masks/ KN95s on hand for people that have misplaced their own mask.

The wearing of cloth masks, neck gaiters, or bandanas is no longer considered an effective face covering. To mitigate the spread of omicron, the use of a high-quality mask is important. This means at a bi-layer medical-style mask or a KN95 should be worn when indoors.

Check the website before coming for changes to meeting status.
