Washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds is still the recommended way to ensure your personal protection. You can/should also sanitise your hands when you come in and when you leave.
Please take personal responsibility for helping to keep the space clean and safe and use the cleaning stations around the Library. We also recommend you carry your own sanitising wipes and hand gel, especially for wiping down desks and keyboards before/after use.
You’ll find cleaning supplies dotted around the Library in key places such as printer stations.
There are 28 packs in total located throughout the library building:
Lower Ground Floor- 2 packs
Upper Ground Floor- 3 packs
First Floor- 9 packs
Second Floor- 9 packs
Third Floor- 5 packs
Feel free to use these to sanitise any touch points such as the printer display screen or the PCS/tables in the building. You’ll find a cleaning pack (antibacterial spray and tissue) and instructions on how to use them.
Please put everything back after you’ve used it so the next person can sanitise surfaces before and after use.
