WHAT IS COVID-19?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.
BUILDING CLEANING PLAN - SUMMER 2021
Facility Services will continue to follow the same cleaning and disinfecting practices during the summer of 2021 as were deployed during the pandemic. We will clean and disinfect all occupied classrooms once per day and if the venue is large or has multiple sessions we will clean & disinfect a second time during the day (disinfection may include but not limited to the Clorox 360 process). Touchpoints will be disinfected once per day. Restrooms will be cleaned once per day (high traffic will be cleaned a second time per day). Offices will be cleaned once per week. Residential living rooms used by campers will be cleaned and disinfected after each camp (including a Clorox 360 application).
BUILDING CLEANING PLAN - FALL SEMESTER 2021
Because building occupancy will return to pre-pandemic levels, the ability to offer supplemental COVID specific cleaning will be limited. Custodial operations will clean and disinfect classrooms and restrooms once per day and will only use the Clorox 360 application and touchpoint disinfection for specific illness outbreaks (example: if an office occupant was ill for several days a work order can be submitted to request a specific Clorox 360 application of the office and associated office suite, if a classroom had a specific illness a work order could be submitted to have that classroom treated with Clorox 360). Daily residential living cleaning and disinfection will continue at pre-pandemic levels. The custodial team will continue cleaning, disinfecting and Clorox 360 spraying of quarantine and isolation resident rooms as needed.
