In response to student concerns, Health Services worked to have hand sanitizer stations installed in high traffic areas on campus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.”
When soap and water are unavailable, The CDC recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol to clean hands.
Hand sanitizer stations and refills were purchased by Health Services and installed across campus by Facilities, Operations and Maintenance.
Staff from Health Services will check the stations monthly to monitor use and refill as needed. If you have a high traffic area where you would like to have a hand sanitizer station installed, contact Health Services. They have four stations left and will work to get them installed and maintained on campus. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one of the four remaining stations.
