Safety is top of mind as Western Michigan University prepares to welcome students, faculty and staff back to campus for fall semester. From antimicrobial solutions and misters to electrostatic disinfecting equipment, a number of state-of-the-art cleaning processes are being employed to mitigate spread of COVID-19 on campus.
WMU's General Safety Plan
Each day, thousands circulate throughout WMU's campus, which is the size of a small city. Keeping campus safe this year will require everyone’s participation.
There are four strategies to this:
Required of everyone while indoors, including in classrooms.
Even for mild symptoms, testing is available to all on campus. Students and employees must complete a daily health screening. Everyone, including students, will be asked to isolate if they test positive.
Frequent hand washing and cleaning of high-touch surfaces.
Maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from others while in public spaces.
The best thing each of us can do is model these behaviors consistently; that’s how they become social norms. Every member of this University community has a role to play in keeping campus safe.
Be smart. Be safe. Be Broncos.
