Eastern Michigan University introduces limited number of in-person classes for second half of summer semester

Face coverings, physical distancing and hand sanitizer are part of the process

YPSILANTI --  Eastern Michigan University started the second half of summer classes (Summer B) last week (June 22) with a limited number of in-person classes as part of the semester. Students enter through a single designated doorway to their classroom building and exit through a different designated dooway. Check in tables are at each entrance where students inform of any sickness, symptoms, contact with someone who tested positive to COVID-19, or if they have traveled by air during the last 14 days. Face coverings are required and available for students who do not bring their own, and hand sanitizer is in abundant supply. Fifteen in-person classes are being held. The majority of them are in the Science Complex/Strong Hall, with additional classes in Sill Hall, Sherzer and Ford Hall. Markings have been placed on classroom seats to indicate six-foot distance from the next available seat, with directional arrows highlighting separate entrances and exits to the classroom to keep students from crossing paths.
