Please remember:
If any participants will be sharing a screen for the coming class, inform the training coordinator, Brenda Codella at bcodella@umass.edu, ahead of time. - UMTC can send circular discs to towns/departments to mark distances, mail masks and trial size hand sanitizers if needed.
There will be a Safety Briefing at the beginning of the training session to announce these protocols, to do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
 
If participants are in the same room:
Participants must be 6’ apart and wearing masks. (UMTC team members have been told to stop a class if they see that these requirements are not being followed)
Virtual meeting video must be turned on when possible to increase interaction, confirm attendance, and encourage social distancing
