The health, safety and well-being, both physical and mental, of our student-athletes, staff and Carroll community is our first responsibility. The PE Center will remain locked at all times until further notice. Everyone entering the PE Center (students, employees, and guests) must do so through the north lobby doors, where there is a check-in station. The check-in station will follow the guidelines in the Athletic Building Screening Procedures for taking temperatures and a symptom check for all entering individuals.
