March Highlights

Cleaning during the Cold and Flu Season

What we do:

The Facilities department takes a proactive approach to cleaning. In addition to our normal routine with safe, but powerful hospital grade disinfectant, we utilize disinfectant wipes for greater surface impact. Furthermore, we use a fogging machine, which uses mist to disinfect.  The mist process allows for greater surface contact and product dwell time.

Examples of touch points, or high traffic areas, that are disinfected include; building entrances, (Handicap)push plates and handles, elevator buttons (inside and outside), stairwells, water fountains, office doors, light switches, classroom/lecture hall desks and tables, conference room tables, etc.

 (You can find the year-round cleaning schedule and other Facilities’ procedures under the “Custodial Services” tab on this page)

What you can do:

Remember to frequently wash your hands, cough into your elbow, and if you recognize you are not feeling well, consult with a healthcare provider.  For more information on how you can protect yourself during cold and flu season, please visit the following websites: https://www.wpi.edu/news/announcements/flu-season-has-arrived
