Safety in this time of COVID-19 in Kean's CSMT Science Laboratories
During this time of COVID-19 and the "new normal", the Biological Sciences and Chemistry/Physics Laboratories have of course had to make adjustments as to how classes are run, as have other classes on campus. Students taking science lab classes will find precautions in place such as reduced room capacity arrangements and 'do not sit here' stickers for social distancing etc.... On this web page you will also find safety documents and protocols for your review for each of those areas. Students will receive directions from their instructors regarding reading and acknowledgement of these documents.
