We all hope COVID-19 will be history by June 2022. However, we are currently planning to run X429 and X428 in 2022 with the following COVID-19 restrictions.
- All faculty, students and staff will need to be full vaccinated for COVID-19 per IU policy here
- We plan to minimize the interaction between our group and the general public. This is because the concentrated living and working situation for the 6-week X429 and 5-week X428 courses do not allow the option for somebody who gets COVID-19 to complete the face-to-face course. We will have quarantine facilities, but an outbreak involving more than one or two people could lead to the termination of the face-to-face courses for everybody and cause everybody to complete the courses online (which nobody wants).
We successfully taught courses at IUGFS in 2021 without a single case of COVID-19 because of the protocols listed above. We are confident that we can deliver a safe and rewarding course in 2022.
