Wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, studying alone rather than in groups—it’s all part of everyday life for University of Wisconsin–Madison students as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Wisconsin School of Business photographer Paul L. Newby II captured these signs of the times in mid-November, before instruction shifted fully virtual the week of November 30 to prioritize the health and safety of the campus community.
