This article provides guidelines for in-person use of the EWS computers labs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact us at with any questions.

  • In order to meet campus guidelines and social distancing requirements, the number of lab workstations available for in-person logins have been reduced to 15% - 30% of original capacities in order to maintain a minimum of 6 feet between each workstation.
