Will UB make modifications on campus to accommodate the need for physical (social) distancing?

Yes. In addition to wearing a face covering at all times, physical distancing – also known as social distancing – is highly recommended by the CDC. To promote physical distancing, the university will modify or reconfigure public spaces and/or restrict the use of classrooms and other places where students, faculty, staff and visitors congregate, so that individuals are at least 6 feet apart in all directions.

The university will encourage pedestrians to stay to the right, in single file, when traveling through hallways, walkways and staircases throughout campus. The university will expect the campus community members to observe 6 feet physical distancing guidelines in all areas of campus whether visual guidance is provided or not.
