Steward/Astronomy Specific Guidelines for Responding/Adapting to COVID-19 Pandemic


Here are the Steward guidelines/information of the morning of June 18. They supercede and extend previous guidelines.

Steward Observatory and the Department of Astronomy are adopting policies that will minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19 while allowing us to continue to support our educational, outreach, and research missions. Our policies are intended to be consistent with those of the University of Arizona and the College of Science. We refer you to their web pages at these links:
