April 9, 2020: Accessing Wi-Fi Hotspots

 

Dear Students,

We have received a number of inquiries regarding Governor McMaster’s Home or Work Order as it relates to students’ ability to access Wi-Fi hotspots in the community. Accessing Wi-Fi to conduct school business is considered an essential activity; therefore, you may continue to access Wi-Fi hotspots on Tri-County campuses or other community-designated locations.

Per the Home or Work Order, you must continue to limit social interaction, practice social distancing in accordance with CDC guidance, and take every possible precaution to avoid potential exposure to, and to slow the spread of, COVID-19. Therefore, we ask that you stay in your own vehicle and avoid interacting with others while accessing Wi-Fi hotspots.
