How are the KU Memorial Union facilities cleaned and disinfected?
The KU Memorial Union custodial cleaning program uses an EPA-registered disinfectant to clean touchpoints, public and common area restrooms and kitchens daily. There are also dispenser stations adjacent to large event spaces containing hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer can help prevent the spread of the virus, though proper hand-washing technique is deemed to be more effective by the CDC.
Our crews have also implemented extra measures to clean and disinfect surfaces in public areas that are touched frequently. This includes surfaces such as door handles, banisters, and elevator buttons. An increased cleaning of these “touchpoints” has been in place since October to reduce health risks during flu season. But we have stepped up these preventative measures to further mitigate risks of the novel coronavirus. It is also recommended that all departments purchase single-use disinfectant wipes for human touchpoints within their workspaces such as keyboards, public counters, credit card readers, phones, and shared surfaces and items. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC for preventing the spread of the virus.
Please be sure to take care of yourself. Each of us plays an important role in maintaining our personal health, which in turn helps protect our broader community. Please continue to follow CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 shared earlier by Watkins Health Services.
