The Facilities and Campus Life Working Group provides direct support for schools in their plans for reopening. This includes the development of interim space use and modification guidelines, templates for risk mitigation, assessment of mechanical systems and recommended operating protocols, and custodial operating protocols, as well as a program to promote adherence to public health guidelines.
These efforts proceed in collaboration with the working groups for Public Health, Research, and Academic Planning. Together, we consider all major issues related to the upcoming year and will establish frameworks for the University to resume operations.
