The ISU Book Store in the Memorial Union reopened this week with reduced hours (10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays) to give staff additional time for cleaning and sanitizing. In addition to physical distancing reminders throughout the store, just 50 guests can be in the store at one time -- about 15% of capacity -- to help protect staff and shoppers. Staff are wearing cloth face coverings, and shoppers are asked to as well. The bookstore is selling Iowa State-branded face coverings in the store and online and germ keys (online only). 

Iowa State units also are reminded of the option to reserve cloth face coverings for employees through central stores.
