Safety Practices and Resources

Physical Distancing

It will be necessary to reduce the capacity of all enclosed spaces, such as classrooms, offices, meeting rooms, etc. in order to ensure adequate physical distancing. When scheduling any event that uses a campus space, the user must ensure that the number of attendees is limited to a number at which proper physical distancing can be maintained. Physical distancing is not a replacement for the use of face coverings.

Campus users should avoid gathering in hallways and other common areas. Campus users are also encouraged to travel outside between buildings and avoid use of the tunnel system.
 

Face Coverings

It is expected that all individuals on any UW-Green Bay campus wear a face covering when interacting with other people or when physical distancing cannot be maintained. All public facing employees should wear masks at all time. Employees are encouraged to provide their own face covering and do not need to wear a face covering in their own office. Employees must be trained on how to properly put on and remove a face mask or cloth face covering.

Obtaining PPE, Cleaning Supplies and Other Resources

After July 1, 2020 Operational Areas will request additional supplies through the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Request. Each area will be responsible for maintaining adequate supplies and submitting orders when necessary to maintain the required cleaning of the office space and personal workstations .
