COVID-19 Building Readiness Information

Facilities and Operations has taken multiple actions to ready buildings across campus for occupancy while the COVID-19 pandemic remains a major public health threat. The Centers for Disease Control, New York State Department of Health, American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, and Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations have published recommendations for building owners to protect people and slow the spread during the COVID-19 pandemic that have guided our actions, in consultation with the University’s COVID-19 Task Force and public health experts.

As part of an effort to encourage open space use during the pandemic, Facilities and Operations has also erected tents at four locations on the Morningside campus to facilitate small gatherings.
