Campus Facilities Cleaning and Disinfecting

An outline of UMB’s enhanced cleaning procedures and instructions for cleaning surfaces to help prevent the spread of novel coronavirus.

Environmental Services (EVS) has been consistently working with Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) to learn, understand, and adapt to the cleaning and disinfecting changes and guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other infection control experts. Cleaning and disinfecting protocol has been adjusted because of the pandemic, focusing on high-touch areas.

Point-of-Use Cleaning Carts

The Point-of-Use Cleaning Cart is part of our Protect UMB Pledge.  

For us all to stay healthy, we need to be responsible and commit to our Pledge. This includes utilizing the Point-of-Use Cleaning Kit supplies provided on carts to disinfect surfaces that we will be touching or using prior to use. 

The kits will include appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) gloves, disinfectant spray, dry wipes, and hand sanitizer.
