personnel begin their shift performing routine services. Midway through, the
team shifts to a Touch Point Cleaning, and returns to routine cleaning upon
completion of the Touch Point Cleaning. This schedule is designed to disinfect
surfaces that have been used throughout the first part of the day, essentially
“resetting” the surfaces for the second part of the day. As building occupancy
rises touch point cleaning will be scheduled more frequently.
During the early stages of the
pandemic, supplies in the sanitizing stations were being taken faster than we
could stock them. Currently we have on order improved stands with top locks to
secure the contents. We will continue to order more as they become available.
They will be placed in higher occupancy areas initially and in lesser occupancy
areas as the stands are received.
Cleaning kits will be available
in each building for those attending approved in-person meetings. (One
kit per room) Each building administrator or designated representative
will be responsible for creating a check out, check in process. The kits should
be used to clean common touch points within a meeting / conference / study
room. Instruction for their use are located in each kit. For example, the kits
are managed and distributed at the library main desk, Student Services will
have cleaning kits available for checkout in the Education buildings. Other
areas will be identified for managers and/or locations of the cleaning kits.
These cleaning kits are expected to be used in study areas, lactation rooms,
conference rooms, etc. See the attachment for contents of the Cleaning Kit.
Lactation rooms are scheduled
to be cleaned every night. Cleaning supplies are in each room to allow for
cleaning between uses during the day by the user of the space. The supplies
will be replenished as needed during the nightly cleaning.

areas, will be charged to the requestors speedtype. Subject to staffing and

Etai’s employees are following
the same wellness check each CU employee is required to go through when they
enter the building. Etai’s employees are not wearing a wristband as they are
working with food and don’t want to introduce anything which may cause
additional hazards. Each employee has a date stamped on their forearm
indicating they passed both wellness screenings. Additionally, Etai’s mangers
post the answers to the screening questions and the recorded temperature of
each employee near the register.
