In addition, we are limiting group gathering in our public spaces by either removing chairs and tables or labeling areas and furnitures with a do-not-use signs.
We will try our very best to provide a continuous public supply of sanitizers and wipes, but we recommend our community to carry their own supplies as well and use them frequently. If you notice that cleaning supplies are running low, please contact EAStudies@nyu.edu.
Our department staff will do our best to sanitize frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, handles, buttons, and phones after each in-person shift. We kindly request that our community members, faculty and students alike, do the same. Please review NYU recommendations on personal workspace cleaning and kitchen and breakroom cleaning for best practices.
