What efforts are being made to keep facilities on campus clean?

         Facilities Management continues to complete high-touch cleaning throughout campus. This includes:

  • Cleaning and disinfecting all restrooms and shower rooms
  • Disinfecting all high touch areas (door handles, student desks, light switches, etc.)
  • Trash Removal
  • Cleaning entrance areas
  • Cleaning public areas
  • Cleaning classrooms (floors and walls)
  • Cleaning offices, specifically:
    • Emptying trash containers and cleaning trash cans as needed.
    • Sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and dusting.
    • Spot cleaning carpet, desks and tables.
  • Additional cleaning practices in areas such as open computer labs are being enhanced (e.g. Lab Assistants have always wiped down keyboards and mice with sanitizing wipes in open computer labs. Additionally, users are now being providing wipes to clean keyboards and mice before they use them). IT staff and academic departmental staff will continue wiping down computer labs.
