The University of Findlay’s Emergency Operations Team sub-committee is meeting weekly to create the Oiler Start Safe & Stay Safe plan. As part of the University’s effort to promote the health and safety of the campus community and proactively combat the spread of COVID-19, many new safety measures are being put in place.
The installation of plexiglass barriers in high traffic areas is one of the many new additions to the University. Orion Jones, director of the University of Findlay’s physical plant, said these barriers allow faculty, staff, and students to, “still have face-to-face interactions with an additional level of safety and mitigation.”
On campus, these new additions can be found in high traffic areas such as the Business Office, Shafer Library, Admissions, and the University Bookstore. The Physical Plant is working diligently to install these barriers in other “point of contact” locations as well, and continue to receive requests from faculty and staff who have determined the barriers are needed for their space.
These barriers will help mitigate the transfer of pathogens during in-person communication. The University continues to plan and implement new devices and procedures to decrease the spread of COVID-19.
