Self-screening tool

All employees returning to work will need to submit a health screen daily. Fredonia has developed a website requiring employees to answer a series of screening questions. A response will be generated based on answers, directing the employee to come to work or stay home. Human Resources and supervisors are automatically notified if an employee is directed to stay at home.

In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our workforce, the state requires employees to complete a daily mandatory wellness questionnaire within the first 30 minutes of reporting to work. Employees are encouraged to complete the online form from home, if possible. If employees are experiencing any symptoms, they are directed to not come into the office; instead, they should call their supervisor. All faculty and staff will continue to complete a daily health screening. Employee data from the daily screenings is collected and monitored by Human Resources.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols

Custodial staff are assigned to provide additional cleaning services when possible.  High touch areas continue to be a primary focus along with routine daily cleaning for restrooms, student residence hall bathrooms, common areas, lounges, classrooms, computer labs, meeting rooms, elevators, stairwell railings, etc.  

Disinfection of Frequently Touched Surfaces 

Frequently touched surfaces in common use areas of occupied buildings are cleaned and disinfected daily by the custodial department using products found on the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) list of products registered in New York State and identified by the EPA as effective against COVID-19. When such products are temporarily not available, disinfectants labeled for effectiveness against Human Coronaviruses must be used. 

Examples of frequently touched surfaces include:

  • Restrooms

  • Student bathrooms and lounge spaces

  • Break rooms

  • Kitchen areas

  • Door handles, push plates and push bars

  • Stair handrails

  • Light switches

  • Handles on equipment 

  • Buttons on vending machines and elevators

  • Water fountains and hydration stations

  • Public seating

  • Classroom furniture

  • Theatre seating

Building occupants should use disinfectant wipes or spray provided by Custodial Services to frequently disinfect high touch surfaces in their own work space or shared spaces such as:

  • Shared telephones

  • Shared desktops

  • Shared computer keyboards and mice

  • Service counters

  • Light switches

  • Break area refrigerator and microwave handles

  • Vending machine buttons

  • Door handles and push bars

  • Copy machine controls (verify with manufacturer)

  • Shared tools and equipment 

Academic Spaces

Instructors and students should use disinfecting supplies provided in all learning spaces to disinfect their own learning spaces and high touch surfaces in the room before and after using the space:

  • Desks

  • Chairs

  • Instructor console

  • Computer keyboards and mice

  • Light switches

  • Door knobs and handles

  • Shared tools and equipment
