Health and safety

从covid-19的爆发的开始,大学勤奋工作,以确保我们的校园社区的健康和安全的需要。针对校园健康和安全策略的基础上尽量减少传播疾病的保护我们的学生,教师和工作人员的身体健康,同时解决可操作性,指导性和业务连续性方面的考虑我们的学生的能力来上课,我们的教师的能力,教或进行研究和我们的员工来工作的能力。

The following steps are being followed to ensure the campus community’s health and safety.

Require facial coverings per the governor's directive

Require the wearing of face coverings by faculty, staff and students in any type of in-person classroom instruction, while on campus and at any University office, property, field work or sponsored event, except when employees are alone in a private office.

GOV。史蒂夫·西苏拉克宣布了一项指令有效的6月26日要求所有的内华达州和游客的状态磨损强制性覆盖面,当他们在公众场合,有几个有限的例外。按照GOV。 sisolak的指令,并与来自高等教育校长的内华达系统以前的健康与安全指导汤姆·赖利,该指令的任务那张脸套必须在任何公共场所佩戴,包括公共交通,面向公众的工作环境或光顾业务时,或交互排列与他人在一般公众开放的空间。

The University also continues to stress that employees must maintain social distancing of at least six feet apart.

Reduce each person's potential for infectious contacts

降低个人的密度校园和工作/学习场所,通过“HYFLEX”教学模式在安全水平,并通过以下的内华达州的最新的指引状态的人的大型聚会。

该大学正在逐步扩大员工的入住办公室,以及教室占用。监督员被鼓励使用的工作日程,这将限制物理密度,同时保持运营效率。 HYFLEX教学模式,它提供了通过变焦帮助人的教室会议通过限制课堂进入和退出的瓶颈等减轻病毒潜在传播

Practice social distancing throughout the University campus

Practice social distancing of at least six feet apart in all buildings, classrooms and work spaces on campus

至少六个英尺社会距离,需要在任何时候,除非某个任务需要的工人是在更接近的只是任务的持续时间。物理间距HYFLEX模式下的课堂做过修改。计算机实验室的使用将包括协议,如在适当的安全距离分隔计算机和每次使用后键盘的消毒。学生,教师和工作人员被鼓励使用的技术,如变焦的小组会议。

Scale cleaning and sanitizing capacity to meet public health guidelines

提供更大的卫生措施,包括“高接触”的地方定期消毒,以及遵守健康和安全准则有关环境/工作/教室安全问题。

  • Facilities Services is cleaning and disinfecting all common areas and “high-touch” points each day.
  • 丙烯酸障碍已经安装在整个校园,那里有亲自显著的地方,脸对脸的交易,在300多个地区。
  • ADA-compliant hand sanitizing stations will be placed near the main entrances of all buildings.
  • ADA-compliant sanitizing wipe stations will be placed in each classroom.
  • Students and faculty are instructed to wipe down their personal space between classes.

Facilities Services has implemented the following steps based on these standards as well as CDC guidelines:

  • Increase outside air to the maximum extent possible provided the temperature set point is maintained.
  • 改善空气过滤器效率。每个HVAC系统将被评估,以提高过滤器的效率尽可能。校园滤波器的大约90%在MERV 8,其去除颗粒尺寸3-10微米的额定。这是一个标准的商业建筑过滤器。升级这些过滤器MERV 11将提高效率,以除去颗粒小至1-3微米;这种努力改变MERV 11正在进行中。
  • Operate the HVAC Systems 24/7 to maximize the effect of ventilation and air treatment.

Develop public health awareness materials

The University has developed a comprehensive signage plan for building common areas and department assigned space.

For common areas, there are three distinct signs:

  • COVID signs and symptoms. Located near main building entrances
  • Wash Hands (ADA-compliant with Braille). Located near the existing room signage;
  • Social Distancing in Elevators (ADA-compliant with Braille). Located near elevator call buttons.

部门建议迹象都可用,可以由部门统一印制,或者通过复制中心。地板贴花,识别6英尺大关简单的狼爪子的形式的社会疏远,也被放置在整个校园。

Implement required training protocols for employees and contractors

要求对在校员工和学生强制性covid-19训练,其中包括物理疏远,正确安全地使用手部卫生和环境卫生,面部覆盖物和健康评估的指导。

各种培训课程,已开发出具有指导有序,安全地返回校园。下面的员工培训模块已经公布在webcampus(画布)。

  • General COVID-19 Training for University Personnel (Required for all on-campus employees)
  • COVID-19 Training for Research Laboratories and Creative Activities (Required for anyone working in a research laboratory or studio)
  • Supervisor’s Training for COVID-19 (Required for anyone supervising at least one employee)
  • Well-Being in the Time of COVID-19 (Voluntary for all on-campus employees)
  • COVID-19 Student training for students via WebCampus

Develop coordinated testing, treatment and contact tracing processes

通过测试,治疗和接触资源准备的公共卫生应对追查与沃肖县卫生区协调进行。

学生健康中心(SHC),与沃肖县卫生区(wchd)合作,与访问,为有症状的学生和员工病毒测试协助,并将与wchd密切合作,接触者追踪,识别和隔离所有的人暴露于covid-19。 SHC将所有正covid-19测试报告wchd。 SHC将协助与covid-19症状或诊断和所有学生所有学生的管理之下检疫曝光后,包括/放置在隔离检疫住房,心理支持,满足基本需求的支持,并持续监控,同时隔离。
