COVID-19 Response

Health and safety are the priority. We are safest in a community where we choose actions that show care for ourselves and for one another. Productivity and convenience are secondary concerns to health and safety.

Limit on-campus activities to the essential.
  • Conversations and meetings should take place virtually
  • Limit time in public spaces such as hallways, stairwells, atrium, etc.
Be respectful of others’ health and safety.
  • Wear a face covering at all times when on campus
  • Yield space to others in congested areas to maintain social distancing
  • Stay home if you have signs of a respiratory infection or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
Take responsibility for your own health and safety.
  • Wipe down shared surfaces – countertops, instruments – prior to use
  • Limit occupancy within rooms to one person unless stated otherwise

Anonymously submit a safety question, concern, or suggestion.

If you do not wish to remain anonymous, you may contact chemistry personnel directly. Safety concerns can also be reported directly to EHSO.

Feedback can be most productively addressed by reaching out to leadership directly as a conversation can place concerns in context and provide you with access to direct follow-up. Some general guidance on who to contact follows:

Faculty: Brian Dyer
Graduate: Simon Blakey
Undergraduate: James Kindt
Facilities, Staff, Operations: Todd Polley
