EH&S COVID-19 Additional Resources

Resource Requests

Request can be submitted through the Resource Request Form

In addition to face coverings EH&S is also assisting the distribution of other COVID supplies including gloves, sanitizer, disinfectant, and air purifiers. Details on the former are listed below.

Air purifiers are available for shared multi-occupant offices, public facing spaces, and high density areas. Air purifiers are not appropriate for private single occupant offices. Purifiers have been placed in instructional spaces where appropriate.

Please note all building ventilation systems have been optimized to allow for the maximum amount of outdoor air mechanically possible, air exchanges are also operating at the capacity of their design. Building ventilation system air filters have been upgraded to MERV 13 throughout campus. Due to the implementation of these controls, air purifiers are NOT a required COVID mitigation measure for multi-occupancy and conference spaces.

If you have a space that would benefit from an air purifier please submit the request through the COVID-19 Air Purifier Request form.

Disinfectant

  • Cleaning - The removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. Does not inherently kill germs, but may remove them.
  • Disinfecting - The use of chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or physically remove germs.

It is important to select appropriate disinfecting solutions. When possible, use an EPA listed disinfectant

There are two disinfectants available on the resource request form.  Both are EPA listed disinfectants.

EcoLab Hydrogen Peroxide Surface Disinfectant Spray
