Students may no longer eat or drink in classrooms or the library.
Campus guidelines were updated in response to COVID-19 stating where students are allowed to eat or drink in an email from the Juice at 8:23 a.m. Monday, Sept. 14.
The email stated that removing masks in indoor teaching and learning places and Vogel Library for the purpose of eating or drinking posed a health risk.
“Should someone need to hydrate during class, they can briefly leave the academic space, hydrate and return,” the email said. “Good hand hygiene should be used after touching the facial mask.”
The decision is effective immediately and comes from Wartburg’s Emergency Governance Committee.
