Hygiene & Personal Protective Equipment
In alignment with CDC and university guidelines and to minimize the potential for the spread of COVID-19, the university has purchased and will issue two (2) reusable and washable cloth face coverings for each student, staff and faculty member. The university is centrally sourcing/purchasing hand sanitizer and finalizing spatial plans and associated mechanisms for distribution to facilitate effective hand washing/sanitizing practices.
Further, additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including, but not limited to, gloves and face shields will be provided if the daily activity/tasks necessitate the usage of such equipment. Facilities Management/Environmental Health & Safety will evaluate all products and associated application processes to ensure appropriate PPE is identified and available for end users. Information regarding the proper use, risks (if any), proper health & safety practices and PPE requirements will be provided to all end users.
Marketing and communication campaigns are currently being developed and implemented to facilitate effective personal hygiene, utilization of PPE and social distancing practices across the university community.
