COVID-19 Disinfectant Procedures
Personal Cleaning Materials 

DFM provided all departmental offices with a bottle of disinfectant solution, however some staff members may choose to purchase additional cleaning materials. Verify that additional supplies eliminate COVID-19 by checking the EPA Registered Disinfectant List.

COVID-19 Disinfectant Procedures

Custodial COVID-19 Operations:

WKU's ESA staff are leading the campus in proper disinfectant procedures. WKU public spaces (lobbies, classrooms and study rooms) are cleaned at least twice a day to help slow the spread of COVID-19. All public spaces are also provided disinfectant supplies to enable more frequent cleaning. Check out the revised office cleaning schedule to see how ESAs are adapting to the increased demand to clean communal spaces. As a reminder, ESA's can only clean spaces they have access to. Review the ESA No Access Areas document to ensure inaccessible areas are being cleaning internally by the managing department. 


Our Disinfectant 

WKU is using EcoLab Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant to clean common spaces. The EPA has confirmed that this product is an approved disinfectant for COVID-19. This solution is diluted at 6oz per gallon, so the contact time (wet surface time) needed to combat Coronavirus is 45 seconds. Facilities Management recommends allowing the disinfectant to fully evaporate to maximize contact time. This product can be used safely without gloves, but it is recommended users wash their hands after using the disinfectant. For more information about Ecolab Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner, reference the SDS sheet


Hand Sanitizer Stations

Bulk hand sanitizer stations are located at the primary entrance to every building. To see which entrances are equipped with hand sanitizer stations, reference the campus map. Hand sanitizer stations are also located on each floor of every academic building and in front of WKU's 5 communal computer labs. Hand sanitizer stations are strategically positioned by the stairs and elevators within buildings to ensure students can sanitize their hands in between classes.
