Just prior to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic to the United States, an augmented reality-based exhibit was built and pilot tested with a group of students and faculty. The exhibit strives to utilize key educational affordances of this teaching medium (e.g., removing physical barriers of time and space) to increase patron engagement with content and help them learn. This unique application of augmented reality offers many opportunities to enhance learning about our world and provides students with greater exposure to this emerging technology. It also may serve as a model of how the technology can be utilized in the classroom to teach principles and other challenging conceptual knowledge for which the affordances of this technology are suited. This paper is a report of ongoing efforts to further develop and improve this exhibit in an effort to provide background and ideas for those interested in creating AR experiences to enhance learning. It discusses key development considerations and summarizes several practical applications for this technology in a library setting. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2021

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has severely impacted the meat processing industry in the United States. We sought to detail demographics and outcomes of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infections among workers in Nebraska meat processing facilities and determine the effects of initiating universal mask policies and installing physical barriers at 13 meat processing facilities. During April 1-July 31, 2020, COVID-19 was diagnosed in 5,002 Nebraska meat processing workers (attack rate 19%). After initiating both universal masking and physical barrier interventions, 8/13 facilities showed a statistically significant reduction in COVID-19 incidence in <10 days. Characteristics and incidence of confirmed cases aligned with many nationwide trends becoming apparent during this pandemic: specifically, high attack rates among meat processing industry workers, disproportionately high risk of adverse outcomes among ethnic and racial minority groups and men, and effectiveness of using multiple prevention and control interventions to reduce disease transmission.
