Cleaning Protocols

Mason has established best practices and guidelines to keep campus facilities as clean as possible.

University housekeeping services follow cleaning and disinfection protocols that follow the CDC’s COVID-19 guidance (Cleaning and Disinfecting Your FacilityCleaning and Disinfection for Community Facilities) and includes the use of EPA-approved disinfectants.

High-touch surfaces (door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, etc.), and horizontal surface areas in classrooms and common areas will be disinfected frequently.

We encourage the Mason community to use disinfecting wipes to clean commonly used surfaces (personal workspaces, conference tables, etc.) or shared equipment (copiers, printers, laptops, telephones, etc.).
