BYU POLICY

Although state public health requirements related to COVID-19 may change, BYU will continue to operate with the same safety protocols that have been in place since the beginning of winter semester. BYU still requires face masks, physical distancing, random testing, limited event and activities, limitations on social gatherings and other COVID-19 mitigations.

Additionally, BYU still encourages employees to work from home when possible. The university is currently evaluating when and how returning to work on campus will occur. When such a return does happen, BYU will provide a transition period to allow faculty and staff to readjust from the current working conditions to the new working conditions. Y News will provide an update by the end of April.

Spring and summer term classes and course delivery will continue as planned with a mix of in-person, remote and blended class options.

EXHIBITIONS

While we are not hosting receptions of any kind, if you find yourself on campus, stop by the HFAC to see some current work by Art and Design students.

WOOD SHOP

The wood shop in room B315 is open again for regular hours, 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. Wood shop availability is subject to change at any time. Summer is always low-traffic anyways, but gallery staff may decide to limit capacity in the wood shop for social distancing safety purposes. A mask is required at all times in the wood shop; it is strongly recommended you bring your own but we do have a small supply of disposable masks available if you arrive without one. Students must have previously received training and present their shop card to gallery staff at time of use. If you need to use the wood shop but have not previously received training, please contact the gallery director- gallery_director@byu.edu
