NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. -- Westminster College has laid out a plan to keep campus clean.

“Faculty and students have been asked to engage in “passive cleaning,” which means disinfecting spaces between the times when our physical plant staff are deep cleaning rooms each night.  For students, this includes disinfecting desks or tables with the spray cleaner that is available in each classroom, both at the beginning and the end of a class.  Also, we hope that students are being responsible by throwing away trash as they leave classrooms.  Our goal is to provide students with the ability to clean their spaces so that they feel comfortable while learning,” Westminster College Dean Dr. Jamie McMinn, said in regard to cleaning procedures.

The HVAC systems on campus now use higher efficiency filters and have been adjusted to allow as much fresh air as possible to circulate. Individuals are encouraged to open windows to increase the flow of fresh air.

Physical Plant staff conduct nightly deep cleaning sessions in every classroom. They also restock the hand sanitizing stations across campus.

The chances of exposure and risk of spreading are reduced when properly following the cleaning procedure according to Westminster’s main website.
