Cleaning Update for Duluth Campus - June 29, 2020

During the Sunrise Plan, Facilities Management Custodians have been deep cleaning and disinfecting every building using cleaning agents approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for killing the COVID19 virus.  Items and areas cleaned included furniture, door handles and plates, light switches, elevator buttons, ledges and handrails, and waste stream receptacles.  As custodians continue to help protect the campus by increased cleaning and disinfecting, they need your help to maintain community health.  Updated cleaning guidelines can be found HERE.
