Cleaning and disinfecting of most public spaces at UB is the responsibility of University Facilities’ custodial team. This team works hard to routinely clean and disinfect all UB public spaces in accordance with CDC and Department of Health guidelines. But we all need to do our part and wipe down personal work spaces, private offices and commonly touched areas to stop the spread of illness.
