How King’s is keeping Students, Staff, and Faculty Safe
Since this is my last year at King’s, I don’t want to focus on how COVID-19 influenced my experience, but how King’s made it unique. To keep this year full of class time and events like any other, King’s has really prioritized on-campus safety. Here are some of the ways that King’s has been making this year safe for students, staff, and faculty:
- Traffic Flow Arrows
Similar to grocery stores, there are traffic flow arrows in the hallways to ensure that everyone is able to maintain a safe distance of six feet apart.
- Distancing in Washrooms
Some washrooms stalls are blocked off and capacity numbers are posted at the entrance to ensure that social distancing can be maintained between used stalls.
- Hand Sanitizer Stations
Keep your eyes peeled for new hand sanitizer stations around the campus, specifically at the entrances. All offices in the building also have hand sanitizer for individuals to use.
- Wipes Stations
In each classroom there are wipes that students can use to sanitize their desk or table to ensure that they are kept safe.
- QR Code Check in
Prior to coming on campus, every student, faculty, staff, and guest is required to fill out a quick questionnaire to ensure that it is safe for them to come on the campus.
- Social distancing in classrooms
In classrooms, seats are a minimum of six feet apart from each other. Chairs have been removed from classrooms to limit numbers, and some seats have simply been blocked off as needed.
- Sanitizing of Classrooms
Each classroom is being sanitized in between use to ensure that surfaces are cleaned and students are kept safe.
- Enforcement of Masks
Following city regulations, King’s has a mask policy in which everyone is required to wear a mask in all public spaces including hallways, washrooms, and classrooms, etc.
These rules are important to ensure that Kings can maintain the unique hybrid system implemented this year. I for one am very satisfied with my experience so far, and am very happy with the way that King’s has been working hard to keep us all safe in these strange times.
Remember to wear your mask and wash your hands,
