Campus and Hygiene Protocols
Washing your hands thoroughly will support the community in staying safe and healthy. Hands must be washed with soap and warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds, especially and immediately after the following:
- Using the restroom
- Entering or exiting a public place
- Blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing, or touching your face
If warm water and soap are not available, you may use a hand sanitizer containing a minimum of 60% alcohol content. When applying hand sanitizer, cover the entire surface of the hands, and rub them together until dry. Once your hands are clean, remember to avoid touching your face as much as possible.
Coughing & Sneezing
If you are in a private setting and are not wearing a face covering or mask, please remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or use the inside of your elbow, when you cough or sneeze. Afterward, immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, please use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
In addition to enhanced cleaning, everyone is encouraged to wipe down commonly used surfaces in conference rooms and common areas. If you have touched surfaces in conference rooms, common areas, or other work spaces, wipe down the surfaces with cleaning products available in the space. Cleaning products should remain in their designated areas.
Everyone should use disinfecting cloths provided in the work environment to wipe down frequently touched surfaces at their workspaces upon arrival and prior to departure from campus.
To limit potential transmission of the virus, wash your hands before and after eating, and wipe down all common surfaces—including table, chairs, refrigerator handles, and coffee machines— with disinfectant or disinfectant cloths.
