On-Campus Safety Measures
Each campus has designated isolation rooms for anyone who may become ill while on campus, but will need a place to wait for transportation before they can leave campus. Staff will direct those in need to the isolation room, which are marked with signs.
Housekeeping staff and other designated employees will regularly disinfect shared surfaces, such as light switches, door handles, counter surfaces, shared equipment and areas such as break rooms, restrooms and elevators.
Hand sanitizer is available across campus and in key locations for students and employees; you are encouraged to carry your own sanitizer.
Signs are posted across all campuses to notify students, employees and visitors of health and safety measures.
