Facilities

Prior to the return of students, staff, and faculty, all facilities will be reviewed and, as required, cleaned and repaired. In addition, signs, posters, sanitizing dispensers, and other safeguard systems will be reviewed and reposted across the campus and in all Alfred University facilities.

The University will employ regular cleaning schedules.  Bathrooms in all academic and administration buildings will be cleaned and disinfected at least once daily; all cleaning and disinfection will be recorded in maintenance logs, and the Facilities department will review these logs regularly for compliance with standards.
