Faculty and staff need to be aware, building access has changed. In an effort to maintain the extensive efforts taken by Facilities to keep buildings free from the coronavirus, empty buildings have been secured. This has been done by changing the exterior door locks of those buildings.
Your understanding is appreciated. These measures were not taken lightly. Given the viability of the virus (i.e. lasting days on certain surfaces) and the potential individuals without symptoms may be carrying the virus, an abundance of caution for the safety of all was needed. This action eliminates unnecessary time and effort on empty buildings and ensures Facilities can focus on occupied buildings.
If faculty or staff have an absolute need to access a secured building, they can contact Public Safety at Extension 5083. Public Safety will coordinate access and additional precautionary measures to ensure those areas accessed are re-cleaned.
Thank you for your cooperation.
