Cleaning Protocols

The University’s Facility Services Operations group has established a COVID-19 Custodial Services Action Plan to implement cleaning protocols as recommended by health authorities.

High-Contact Touch Points
The University has adjusted its cleaning protocols to focus on the cleaning and disinfecting of high contact touch points, including: door handles, elevator buttons, hand rails, washroom faucets, water fountains, garbage receptacles, etc.  These common high-touch contact points will be cleaned a minimum of twice daily by Facility Services, Custodial staff.

Work Spaces
Staff and faculty are responsible to clean their own equipment including workstations, keyboards, phones, office equipment, lab equipment, and other shared equipment.  Protocols must be implemented by Supervisors for the cleaning of tools, equipment, and vehicles between users. Supervisors can purchase cleaning and disinfecting products through Facility Services at repair@uwindsor.ca or ext. 2850. Order form and prices here. Cleaning products must be stored and labelled properly, with Safety Data Sheets readily available to users.

Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer is available in wall-mounted dispensers throughout University buildings, in common areas such as main entrances and exits, elevator areas, etc. These dispensers are maintained by Facility Services.  Supervisors are responsible to provide hand sanitizer to front-line reception/service areas, or areas where handwashing facilities are not readily available, for hand hygiene between service interactions.  Supervisors can purchase hand sanitizer by contacting Facility Services at repair@uwindsor.ca or ext. 2850. 

Cleaning protocols upon a confirmed COVID-19 case at the University

In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case within a University building or space:

  • Facility Services will close and secure the area to be cleaned and disinfected.  Signage will be posted to indicate the area is closed for cleaning.
  • The area will be cleaned and disinfected in accordance with public health guidelines/procedures.
