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.
