Although Stockton’s detailed fall restart plans are still under development, there are a few high-level concepts we can offer:
The University-wide goal is to support a general principle of six feet of physical
separation in public spaces, including::
- Classrooms, labs, and studios
- Residential living facilities
- To the extent possible, public access facilities and routes such as restrooms, hallways,
- Dining and food service areas
- Shuttle transportation
These efforts will be supported with protocols relating to campus signage, classroom,
and public-space guidelines.
As just one example: many standard classrooms may incorporate a “checkerboard” seating
arrangement for students (every other seat in every other row) to help support physical
Cleaning and Sanitizing
Protocols for cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing campus rooms and buildings are
being developed in accordance with local, state, and federal public health guidelines.
Stockton’s maintenance and custodial staff will clean and disinfect campus buildings
more frequently to help reduce the spread of germs on commonly-touched surfaces like
door handles, sink faucets, handrails, computer stations, etc.
Our dedicated employees can’t do it alone. We must all do our part by using disinfecting
wipes (provided by Stockton) to wipe down common areas to minimize surface transmission
of bacteria and germs.
The University is also working to increase the number of touch-free hand-sanitizer
units and waste receptables throughout our campus locations.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- The University will require everyone students, employees, and visitors
- to wear face coverings while in public/shared spaces on campus. Individuals who have
underlying health conditions which prevent the wearing of such coverings will need
to contact Human Resources (employees) or the Wellness Center (students) to request an exception.
In general, cloth face coverings that are reusable/washable will serve as the recommended
PPE. These masks should be washed daily.
Similar to other protective wear (like shoes), each person will be expected to provide
their own mask or cloth covering. A limited supply of disposable surgical masks will
be available at various campus locations for individuals who forget their cloth covering.
