Overview and metadata sections

The signs were found in Lutnick Library's Rufus Jones Study on February 22, 2022 by library staff. Bi-Co COVID-19 policies at the time mandated vaccination, wearing surgical masks, social distancing, COVID-19 testing, and contact tracing for students, faculty, and staff.

Four signs designed using a Haverford College template parodying College COVID-19 guidance and restrictions. Each sign has different text, including "SPACE CAPACITY: This space can safely accommodate: NO PEOPLE," "NO BREATHING ALLOWED IN THIS SPACE," "ALWAYS WEAR YOUR ANKLE BRACELET," and "SUCK MY FACE A BIT: IF YOU WISH TO SUCK MY FACE A BIT PLEASE STEP OUTSIDE AND AWAY FROM OTHERS."
