Public Health Signage; Fire Alarm Testing in Process
In support of upcoming campus tours, signs are being posted around the campus highlighting our required public health practices for prospective students and their families.
The Facilities team is doing annual fire alarm testing, checking to ensure smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and the sprinkler system are working correctly.
An electrician is replacing exterior lights that are burned out. This is an annual project to ensure sufficient lighting.
To ensure sufficient supply, Augsburg is securing bulk supplies of hand sanitizer and wipes. A return to campus plan is in the works that will include where wipes and hand sanitizer will be made available across campus by the start of the fall semester.
Augsburg is continuing to work under its modified operations plan, which is in effect until further notice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Summer classes are online. Employees (including faculty, staff, and student workers) whose roles are deemed critical to university operations will retain access to campus buildings for work purposes. Resident students who received exceptions to live on campus still retain fob access to their residence hall.
Cloth masks are in stock for critical staff and faculty and resident students. Contact Bryan Massich to receive one. All staff, faculty and students MUST wear cloth face masks while in any common areas while on Augsburg property, based on Minnesota Department of Health guidelines for higher education. Resident students must wear them while out of their residence hall living spaces. Wearing cloth masks does not replace the need to adhere to frequent hand washing, avoiding touching the face, and practicing social distancing, our best tools to help prevent the spread of illness.
Critical employees who are entering a space that’s been marked cleaned and disinfected, please take the sign down and put in a work order to have it cleaned and disinfected. If you plan to work multiple days in a row, please wait until your last visit to make a work order.
