What is PPE, and how will it be used on campus in fall 2020?
Personal protective equipment, or PPE, refers to materials used to prevent person-to-person transmission of coronavirus.
Two masks will be provided to faculty, staff and students. Additional PPE, such as face shields and gloves, will be allocated to staff and faculty as appropriate. Visitors are expected to bring and wear their own masks. Training on proper use and maintenance will be provided.
Masks or other face coverings will be required for all individuals on campus in most indoor spaces, including classrooms, lecture halls, common spaces, labs, studios and offices where multiple people congregate and/or ability to social distance is limited. Masks will also be required in outdoor spaces on campus where social distancing cannot be maintained.
