Will offices be safe?

June 16, 2020

The university is implementing prudent health and safety protocols that align with recommendations by local, state and national public health authorities. UWM is also asking campus community members to adhere to published health and safety guidelines to minimize the prevalence of and exposure to COVID-19. The university cannot guarantee that individuals will not get sick, however, as it cannot control all activities and movement within the UWM community.

In most cases, offices will have been vacant for weeks when employees return to campus. Environmental Services will thoroughly clean and disinfect offices before employees return. After that, employees will be responsible for the daily disinfecting of offices, which has the benefit of limiting the number of people in individual spaces.

Before a department returns employees to campus, supervisors or department heads should contact Environmental Services at 414-229-4742 to arrange plans for cleaning before employees reoccupy the space.
