The University’s custodial cleaning program uses disinfectants which comply with the EPA’s protocol for coronavirus.
Currently in Phase 2, high traffic buildings, designated as open, are cleaned and disinfected two to three times per week with offices cleaned once per week. Facilities Services in-house custodial services staff and a third-party contracted firm implemented extra measures for increased cleaning and disinfecting of “touch points” in high traffic, public areas that includes, but are not limited to, surfaces such as door handles, ADA door opening buttons and ramp railings, counters, conference room tables, eye wash stations and buttons, elevator buttons, panic bars on doors, podiums, phones, desk tops and edges, chairs and chair backs, light switches, drinking fountains, classrooms armchairs, and more. More buildings will be added and custodial services staffing increased as more employees return to working in the office, per Phase 3 directives and beyond.
Faculty and staff are expected to clean and disinfect their individual work spaces.
