Student Workers Painting Residence Hall Units; Ice Arena Reopening for Rentals
Augsburg has hired student workers to paint rooms inside residence halls rather than outside contractors. They are currently working on Urness hall and will be painting in all of them this summer.
The Augsburg Ice Arena is reopening June 15 for rental only. The arena shut down in March because of a roof leak that’s been repaired.
Augsburg is working under a modified operations plan, which is in effect until further notice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Summer classes are online. Employees (including faculty, staff, and student workers) whose roles are deemed critical to university operations will retain access to campus buildings for work purposes. Resident students who received exceptions to live on campus still retain fob access to their residence hall.
Cloth masks are in stock for critical staff and faculty and resident students. Contact Bryan Massich to receive one. All staff, faculty and students MUST wear cloth face masks while in any common areas while on Augsburg property, based on Minnesota Department of Health guidelines for higher education. Resident students must wear them while out of their residence hall living spaces. Wearing cloth masks does not replace the need to adhere to frequent hand washing, avoiding touching the face, and practicing social distancing, our best tools to help prevent the spread of illness.
Critical employees who are entering a space that’s been marked cleaned and disinfected, please take the sign down and put in a work order to have it cleaned and disinfected. If you plan to work multiple days in a row, please wait until your last visit to make a work order.
