Previous Communications

Preventative Measures

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve; throw tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

Housekeeping

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

On a daily basis, as part of the routine cleaning, surfaces at TBCC are sanitized; this has been the practice for years at TBCC. The product used on campus is a sanitizer/virucide; the solution used kills almost all bacteria.  Over the past two weeks, the custodial staff has expanded the cleaning regimen to include the daily sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces through the building. This however does not include individual offices or work areas as a matter of respect for personal space.

Supplies are available to staff and faculty to clean personal space and individual offices. Contact Pat Ryan, Director, Facilities, Human Resources, and Safety.  Being diligent with the hygiene and housekeeping efforts of the campus community and facilities are important factors in helping keep germs in check.

Let us each do what we can to help maintain a healthy campus.
