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.
Drinking Fountains, Water Bottle Fillers
Drinking fountains are turned off, but water bottle fillers will remain open. Signs will direct students and employees to water bottle filler locations on campuses.
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, as well as directional signs; enter and exit only for doors; up and down only for stairwells; elevator capacity; please stand here, etc. Please be patient as the College replaces signs on campus about the change to masks at STLCC.
