COVID-19 Cleaning Policy for High-Touch Surfaces
Current CDC guidelines (as of May 2021) recommend cleaning or disinfecting high-touch surfaces at least once per day. Out of an abundance of caution, Texas Facilities Commission staff and library staff will clean certain high-touch surfaces in the library at least twice per day with standard household cleaning products.
Library staff may clean surfaces as needed at the request of a library user. Cleaning products will also be available upon request to library users who would like to clean a surface on their own. Routine cleaning of all other areas of the library will be performed by Texas Facilities Commission staff on a regular basis.
The following high-touch surfaces will be cleaned by either Texas Facilities Commission staff or library staff twice a day:
- Common surfaces on public amenities (door handles, etc.).
- Public library technology including public computers, public copy machines, and public scanners.
Other surfaces (such as study carrels or tables) can be cleaned on request.
