MacCheck and Masking

Those using Mills Learning Commons in the coming weeks will be asked to show their completed daily MacCheck upon entry. Masking continues to be required at all times. Food and beverages are still not permitted. Those using our spaces are reminded to be kind to other users and staff. Information about MacCheck can be found on the Back to Mac website.
