Eight Ways Campus is Different
Masks are Mandatory: Non-medical face masks must be worn in all indoor common areas. Masks are a necessary, recognized, practicable and effective way to limit the spread of COVID-19. Get the full policy here...
Traffic flow markers: In an effort to ensure we are all safe, flow of traffic is encouraged throughout campus, you will see floor markings and decals to help navigate through spaces, and floor marked waiting zones to help maintain physical distancing. Some narrow corridors may have yield signage so watch for the cues.
Hand sanitizer stations: There will be hand sanitizer available at high-touch points, building entrances, exits, hallways, classrooms & common areas.
Washrooms: Washrooms on campus are open. Extra control measures you’ll find include: Maximum capacity signs at entrances, locking off sink use where sinks are placed too close together, and reducing stall counts.
No-loiter zones outside classrooms and lecture halls: A number of spots on campus will have signage reminders asking people not to gather in groups. To help with this, some furniture on campus has been removed and signage will reinforce walking patterns.
Elevators: Minimize the use of elevators wherever possible, and use the stairs. Unless there is sufficient space for two people to stand diagonally, no more than one person may use the elevator at any time.
Water fountains: Bring your own reusable water bottle (or two) filled with H2O. Fountains with bottle fillers will still have bottle filling capabilities.
Eating: At this time, there is no access to office kitchens and appliances. This includes refrigerators, microwaves, dishwashers, coffee brewing equipment, kettles or shared utensils or dishware. Please bring your own food, beverages, utensils and dishware from home. Kitchen sinks may be used for drinking water, and faucets should be disinfected before and after use.
