Staying safe on campus

While most students, staff and faculty are learning and working remotely this term, we’re still working hard to make sure campus is a safe place. For those who need to be on campus for research, essential work or in-person classes, here’s some key information you’ll need to know.

New health and safety measures now in place

We’re doing things differently these days. Our new normal includes:

  • Increased cleaning in high-traffic areas, like washrooms and common areas
  • Daily cleaning of all in-use classrooms
  • Limiting the number of people on campus
  • Restricting access to shared spaces like washrooms
  • Requiring masks in all public indoor campus spaces
  • Providing physical distancing guidelines in all lab and classroom spaces
  • Making hand sanitizer available at all building and classroom entrances
  • Communicating physical distancing and reduced classroom capacities with detailed signs
  • Encouraging physical distancing in hallways, stairways and buildings with directional signs
  • Requiring COVID-19 Awareness training for all staff and students who need to come to campus
