This artifact is an informational sign regarding the Merrimack College COVID-19 guest policy during the 2020-2021 school year. This sign was intended to inform Merrimack students living on campus of the guest policy and guidelines within residence halls. In general, guests were prohibited with the exception of parents/guardians, who had to remain outside during their visit. Prior to the pandemic, the college’s guest policy had allowed for registered guests to enter the campus and stay overnight.
Students who violated the COVID-19 guest policy had to create such signs as a sanction. This sanction was put in place by the Office of Residence Life during the fall and spring semesters of 2020-2021. The above sign could have been found during the 2020-2021 school year in O’Brien Hall hung around the walls and doors of the building.
