In response to the pandemic, University of Arizona risk management, planning and facilities teams have implemented public health measures across campus, including Health Sciences buildings. As students, faculty and staff return, they'll notice many changes, including hand sanitizer installed at entrances; plexiglass barriers at desk areas; signage with reminders about masks and social distancing; hands-free restroom fixtures; sufficiently spaced furniture; room and elevator capacity limits that facilitate safe physical distancing; and an abundance of cleaning spray in every classroom.
