The building closures and hours limitations announced last week are intended not only to reduce personal contact but also to allow cleaning crews to focus their energies on more frequent and intensive cleaning of places that remain in use, especially areas where higher traffic is unavoidable. Campus Services has stepped up cleaning routines in spaces that remain open.

Those who are able to work from home can help by working remotely as much as possible, to minimize risk for colleagues who cannot work from home and to further reduce burden on our custodial staff. 

What Campus Services is doing to fight the spread/arrival of COVID-19

We are currently disinfecting hard surfaces in all buildings at least twice a day with the exception of:

  • Computer keyboards and mice, telephones, desktops (cleaning these is the responsibility of the employee)
  • Trash/Recycling Cans (once/day if the office/space is occupied)

The items that are done twice a day are as followed:

  • Door knobs/pulls
  • Tabletops/countertops
  • Arms of chairs
  • Light switches
  • Elevator buttons
  • Hand rails
  • Drinking fountains
  • All bathroom surfaces
  • All glass doors instead of glass cleaner
  • Floors
  • Trash/Recycling Cans
