To safeguard the health of all members of MSU and the surrounding volunteer community during this global pandemic, the Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement highly recommends following all CDC guidelines, MSU recommendations, and Guidelines for Student Life Activities to engage safely in our events. To mutually protect the MSU community, community partners, and their clientele and provide a safe environment, everyone at this event is required and agrees to practice the following: self-screening, on-site temperature checks, wearing face coverings, frequent sanitation, and social distancing of at least six feet.
