Seminar Covid Statement

A notice to non-MIT seminar participants:  at this time, not all seminars are open to the general public, and access to the MIT campus is highly regulated.  Please check the seminar webpage or with the event organizer and confirm whether the seminar you'd like to attend is open to non-MIT (i.e. without CovidPass) attendees.  Some seminars may offer a Zoom option for off-campus participants.

Finally, a reminder to all in-person participants, MIT covid policies must be adhered to: remember to keep your mask on while inside buildings, eating food is not allowed within lecture rooms, and if you are feeling sick on the day of the talk, please stay home!
