In addition to their customary cleaning, custodians are regularly disinfecting all touch-surfaces, including doorknobs, railings, light switches, desktops in classrooms, telephones and trash can lids. Bathrooms also are receiving more frequent cleaning and disinfection treatment.

Training classes were held on upgrading cleaning and disinfecting and personal precautions for the entire UD custodial staff, Warren said. The staff also has been equipped with protective gear, such as disposable gloves, hand sanitizers and masks to use when needed.
