All Staff 

  • Staff, must speak up to offer guidance on physical distancing and infection- control behaviors – never turn a blind eye - if a group or line forms and begins congregating politely ask them to stay 6 feet apart for their safety 

  • All staff members facing guests should frequently make use of hand sanitizer 


Laundry Room Cleaning and Procedures 

  • Use wipes to clean touched surfaces after each use including cabinets, counter, washing machine, dryer, mop sink, doorknobs and light switch

Hand-Cleaning -Washing with soap and water is always preferable! 

  • Hand sanitizer will be located in clinic treatment rooms, clinic reception, administrative offices, administrative kitchen, student records desk, classrooms, student lounge and at front door 

  • When using hand sanitizer, use a sufficient amount to fully coat your hands and allow it to air- dry. It takes 20 seconds for alcohol-based solutions to kill viruses and bacteria.
