>> So, our staff has been busy in all of the classrooms, which are somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 across campus, to make sure that we have classes that are socially distanced so they've been doing a lot with signage, placing dots on the floors where chairs need to be, and they've also been working on new cleaning procedures.
He holds a long pole between two desks in a classroom. The ends of the pole hover above the center of each desk. Elsewhere, a sign on a wall shows an illustration of a spray bottle and a roll of paper towels. The sign reads, "I protect U. We all use it so we all clean it. Learn more at safety dot I U dot E D U". Later, the wheel of a chair comes to a stop over a red dot on the floor.
Mascot Jawz wears a facemask as he opens a door. Small signs on tables in common areas show an illustration of two people separated by a line indicating six feet. The sign reads, "I Protect U. Let's give each other some space".
So, IUPUI has been focused on making sure that the classrooms, the public spaces, and everywhere that our students come into on this campus are safe.
The focus is to make sure this is as absolutely safe as possible for students coming into campus.

>> All of our custodians will be cleaning full cleans in classrooms, conference rooms, restrooms, and dining halls throughout the evening.
Gloved hands wipe down the tops of desks. Later, a man wearing a face mask and backpack steps into a class room holding a nozzle. A gloved hand opens the nozzle releasing a spray.
During the daytime, our custodians are available throughout the day to do all high-touch disinfecting.
Every custodian has a part of disinfecting on their schedule every day.
Our folks are scheduled to three times a day to go around and hit high-touch areas.
Those areas would be entryways, you're looking at door handles, you're also looking at elevator buttons, stairwell railings, and also restrooms.
Gloved hands run cloths over a door push bar, a water fountain, and a stair railing.
We're looking at disinfecting restroom handles, doors, and fixtures several times throughout the day.
When they come into a classroom, there is going to be a paper towel roll provided along with a disinfectant spray.
Jawz walks into a classroom with a backpack slung over one shoulder. Later, he holds a spray bottle as he wipes down the top of a desk with a paper towel.
Each student is able to come in, spray a paper towel, wipe their current area that they're sitting in, and each faculty member can do that as well.
Maintenance workers wipe down common areas.
>> As a student coming on campus this year, obviously everything is going to feel different but, hopefully, you will see a lot of the work that has been poured in by our staff this year.
And if you have a chance and you see a groundskeeper outside, a maintenance worker changing lights, or a custodian walking around disinfecting high-touch areas, if you could give them a thanks, they've really poured a lot of work into getting this campus ready and I know it would mean a lot to our staff if they saw that.
