Cleaning Campus Spaces

GW has implemented enhanced routine cleaning protocols as well processes for cleaning and disinfecting areas that have been occupied by a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. GW meets or exceeds CDC guidelines for frequency of cleaning in classrooms, study spaces, public spaces and residence halls with a special focus on high-touch surfaces and higher traffic areas. It has also made available cleaning supplies, including hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipe and gel dispensers, where appropriate. GW uses cleaning products on EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).  Facilities staff wear masks and disposable gloves and gowns for all tasks in the cleaning process, including handling of trash. Essential designated on-site staff will be responsible for cleaning their own work area and equipment, including phones, computers and desk chairs.
