Cleaning of University Facilities

OSU-OKC provides touch-point cleaning and disinfecting daily in campus buildings and multiple times daily within areas of increased-use or higher risk. OSU maintains alcohol-based hand sanitizer pump and automatic stations and throughout campus.
 

AHI Facility Services Inc. is the contract partner for all OSU-OKC Housekeeping services. Housekeeping follows the guidance of OSU-OKC, local, state and federal guidance for cleaning and disinfecting facilities. Housekeeping personnel utilize EPA-approved disinfectants that limit the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and wear protective clothing as recommended by the manufacturer. In addition to regular cleaning completed during low or moderate risk transmission periods significant or high risk transmission periods require additional cleaning. Common touchpoints including but not limited to door handles, push bars, elevator call buttons, stair rails and light switches. Touch-point cleaning will be performed once daily in buildings including classrooms, common areas, laboratories and offices. Faculty and staff may request additional cleaning supplies from OSU-OKC Purchasing as needed.
 

Vapor disinfection equipment will be utilized in areas where there identified exposures to the virus have occurred. All suspected exposures shall be reported to OSU-OKC Human Resources. Any area determined as being involved will not be accessible for forty-eight (48) hours after COVID exposure to allow proper cleaning and disinfection as recommended by the CDC.
 

High traffic service areas have been provided shields or permanent barriers have been installed to provide additional protection, counters or seating must be frequently cleaned with a university approved virucide in accordance with CDC guidelines.
 

Advanced air filtration systems have been installed in elevators. The CDC recommends in high or significant transmission areas that elevators be used for material transport or for individuals with mobility needs. More frequent filter changes and virus mitigations have been implemented in compatible building systems. Water bottle filling stations will remain open and drinking fountains are closed will continue to be replaced with water bottle filling stations.
