Everyone is encouraged to frequently wash their hands with soap and water throughout
the day, especially after they have been in a public place, used a shared object,
or coughed or sneezed. When soap and water is not readily available, an approved hand
sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol should be used. The CDC recommends hand
washing with soap and water whenever possible as the best means of hand sanitization.
- Building hand sanitizer stations: Facilities Services has installed at least one new
hand sanitizer station in the main entrance or lobby of each building These stations
are available for everyone’s use and will be refilled as needed. Departments do not
need to request hand sanitizer stations.
- Personal bottles of hand sanitizer: Except for unique situations, the University does
not currently plan to replenish or continually supply personal bottles of hand sanitizer
to employees. Everyone is encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water whenever
possible and to use building hand sanitizer stations.
- Departmental hand sanitizer bottles: In locations where access to a sink or the building
hand sanitizer stations is not readily available, a bottle of hand sanitizer may be
requested to have available centrally in the area. When access to a sink is available,
hand washing with soap and water is preferred.
