How does WCU clean and disinfect?

 Our Custodial Services staff cleans many spaces on a daily basis:

  • High touch surfaces such as door handles, railings, and elevator buttons
  • Restrooms and locker rooms
  • Public common areas
  • Classrooms
  • Labs
  • Lounges
  • Kitchenettes

The Custodial Services Cleaning Program uses EPA-registered disinfectant  that meet the agency’s “emerging viral pathogen” guidelines.  As of January 2020 Custodial Services has engaged front-line staff in order to enhance its cleaning protocols.  The enhanced protocol has increased our focus on the high touch surfaces listed above.  We have also implemented an electrostatic spraying system for a more efficient application of disinfection.


WCU Shuttle Buses Operated by Krapf School Bus

In a letter from the President and CEO, Blake Krapf he wrote “We are emphasizing enhanced disinfecting practices on our vehicles, particularly in ‘high touch’ areas and particularly if passengers or others exhibit any symptoms associated with respiratory illness, such as coughing and sneezing.  Areas of focus will include enter/exit handrails, head rests and seat back, steering wheel and dash area.  We will use high strength disinfectants and sani-wipes and disposable gloves.  Our Procurement Department has commenced securing greater quantities of these supplies and our Operations leaders have commenced implementation steps”

PLEASE NOTE:  WCU has asked the shuttle service drivers to not allow a passenger on if they are showing signs of a respiratory illness.
