COVID-19 Guidance at IQSS for Campus Reopening

We are looking forward to a return to campus as IQSS reopens its offices beginning on August 23, 2021. Please check below to see which of our operations will resume in person, and which will continue remotely for the time being.

Our back-to-campus operations will be in guidance with the University-wide Plan for a Safe Campus Reopening, including protocol regarding mask use indoors and safe practices around eating and drinking.

The Quantina (IQSS kitchen)

Eating and drinking will not be permitted in the Quantina. Gathering without food or drink is permitted as long as University guidance around masking is strictly adhered to. The kitchen sink may only be used to clean hands, dishes, cups, and utensils.

Talks, Office Hours, & Seminars

Many of our usual seminars, training, and office hours are now being conducted virtually—check the IQSS calendar for more information on how to attend.
