Sanitizing Classrooms

Sanitization & Cleaning

  • The team has performed a deep-clean and sanitization of classrooms, labs, offices and common spaces during campus closures and will coordinate the daily cleaning of all instructional spaces once our campuses reopen, which includes:

    • Cleaning rooms with EPA-approved products, including wiping high-touch areas such as desktop surfaces, chairs, door knobs and light switches followed by electrostatic application of disinfectant to all surfaces.

  • TTUHSC’s custodial staff will continue to clean common areas, with a heightened focus on high-touch areas such as door knobs and handrails.

  • The anatomy lab in Lubbock and simulation facilities in Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock and Odessa follow cleaning protocols, adhering to CDC guidelines. For all other specialized learning laboratories, individual faculty members and/or students are expected to disinfect their workspaces and necessary equipment before and after use.

  • TTUHSC facilities are equipped with HVAC filtration that exceeds standards for intended  building use. 

What you can do to help

  • Please use available cleaning products to the disinfect the spaces you use on campus.
  • Each classroom will remain stocked with appropriate supplies (e.g., disinfectant spray, paper towels, sanitizer wipes, hand sanitizer). Please contact Facilities and Safety Services to have supplies restocked in classes.
