We are committed to your health and safety

Beyond the standard daily cleaning schedule, SSC Custodial Staff have implemented a daily disinfecting schedule and are using EPA-approved virucides. High-traffic areas such as elevators and community bathrooms are cleaned at least 2 times per day. Common touch points such as elevator buttons, light switches, handrails, and faucets are being disinfected daily.

Hand sanitizer, as available, will be located at our information desks and other high traffic areas.

Signage throughout our residence halls, apartments and common areas will remind our residents to maintain appropriate physical distancing and to follow all other recommended guidelines for maintaining the health and safety of our campus community.

Over the summer, SSC took the opportunity to deep clean our buildings while the majority students were away from campus.

In addition to the ongoing SSC Custodial efforts, it is critical that the campus community follow the guidelines published by the CDC for minimizing the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Some of the most effective methods for reducing the spread of infectious disease is washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, practicing physical distancing, and self-isolating if one has any of the symptoms identified by the CDC.

Face Coverings In Residence Halls and Apartments

Per University Rule, face coverings must be worn in all public spaces on-campus. In the residence halls and apartments, a public space is any indoor space other than your own residence hall room or apartment. Public spaces include all commons spaces in residence halls and apartments such as lobbies, public restrooms, shared kitchens and television lounges. Face coverings should be worn in any enclosed public space, even if you are by yourself.

Students are not required to wear a face covering while in their personal room, suite or apartment, but face coverings are recommended when students are walking down hallways, when visitors are in a student’s room or when residents are visiting in each other’s room.
