|Description||The area used for laptop return inspections.|
I’m not ITS personnel, but here’s how I understand it works from the perspective of a user.
Step 1: Enter Hayes Hall. The signs saying the hall was closed were still up, but I was instructed to enter by ITS to enter, so it’s ok. There was a side door ever so slightly cracked open.
Step 2: Wait to enter the first floor Macintosh computer lab in room 107 if there is someone returning a device inside.
Step 3: When safe, enter the room.
Step 4: Place laptop on a table at an X mark.
Step 5: Read the asset tag for the ITS employee sitting aways away, who does not touch the laptop.
Step 6: Boot the laptop for the employee to prove it is functional. This includes showing that the display is intact and working.
Step 7: Rotate the laptop to show if any cosmetic damage exists, such as missing keys, plastic, metal, stickiness, or water damage.
Step 8: Close the laptop and put it in a bin.
Step 9: A different ITS employee moves the laptops in the bin to a different location, where they will sit for about a week without being touched.
Step 10: ITS actually begins work on the computers.
I showed the employee who was doing the inspections the Wikipedia page for Social Distancing, as it includes a picture of the computer lab in the Bowen Thompson Student Union. He seemed surprised, since he says he was the one who had to place the signs in the picture on every other computer.
