Cleaning: UTA will clean common touch points in public spaces in campus buildings throughout each day and perform additional cleaning in the evening. Since classrooms are used back-to-back with minimal time for cleaning, UTA will provide disinfectant wipes and other cleaning supplies in each classroom for students and instructors to use on their desks and equipment. The University will continue to implement new measures and modify its cleaning protocols to minimize the spread of the virus. Cleaning frequencies will increase and schedules will be modified to meet the needs of the campus community.
Signage: UTA will place signage at building entrances and in restrooms, dining areas, classrooms, elevators, common spaces, stairs, and student engagement spaces to mitigate the spread of the virus. These signs promote properly wearing a cloth face covering, washing hands, social distancing, covering coughs and sneezes, staying home when sick, etc.
Ventilation: UTA will ensure ventilation and filtering systems are operating properly, control relative humidity and increase circulation of outdoor air to further mitigate risks associated with the potential spread of the virus.
Water fountains: All drinking fountains will be turned off to further reduce the spread of the virus. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to bring their own water.
Modified layouts: To promote social distancing, all are encouraged to space seating/desks at least 6 feet apart. For lecture halls and classrooms, certain seats/desks and rows will not be used to ensure social distancing guidelines are met.
