How will UB ensure that students, faculty and staff come back to a safe campus environment?
In accordance and compliance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the New York State Department of Health (DOH), UB has put health and safety protocols in place to protect the campus community’s safety. This includes cleaning and disinfecting in each building as well as frequent cleaning of high-touch and high-traffic areas, providing protective barriers, controlling foot traffic flows, and using elevators and stairwells. UB’s janitorial staff has received additional training in CDC-recommended sanitization and proper bio-safety procedures.
There will be a reduction in density in classrooms, student housing, and offices across campus.
Face coverings will be required on UB’s campuses when physical distancing cannot be maintained. Additional information regarding the use of face coverings in classrooms will be forthcoming.
This guidance will be reviewed periodically to ensure compliance with local, state and federal health organizations.
