I am for sure going to log on.

A key challenge I am facing is how to socially distance students in labs. Transitionally we have been having students work in groups. They collect reagents and glass ware from common areas. After labs they wash their glassware in the few sinks we have (so not possible to socially distance there)

Are we going to need to sterilize glassware after each lab?

Should students be wearing masks? What type?

We have not completely wrapped our heads around the "new normal"
