Returning University Spaces to Original Layouts

Many spaces were modified with Plexiglas barriers, removal of furniture, chair straps, tape, and signage to support social distancing and other public health measures.

Plexiglass Barriers

  • Except for barriers installed at the McCosh Infirmary, all plexiglass barriers may be uninstalled and will be collected for pandemic storage. 
  • Submit a work order to Facilities to coordinate barrier pick-up 
  • Submit a work order to Facilities request assistance disassembling custom, installed barriers.

Seat Straps

  • Collect all seat straps and return them to the MacMillan Building to the attention of Lynn Barbour.
  • Dispose of seat straps that are in poor condition.

Furniture Arrangements

  • Return rooms to original pre-COVID-19 arrangements. 
  • Remove and dispose of “Not in Use” signs, table tent cards, barrier tape and any other social distancing signs. 
  • Submit a work order to Facilities with your departmental chartstring to request assistance moving furniture or refurbishing furniture affected by COVID-19 modifications.


Departments and offices should remove and dispose of unneeded signs, and may keep floor markers and other signs that they find helpful. EHS and Facilities will distribute and/or post new signs that reflect the new guidance on face coverings.

Please remove all COVID-19 signage except these:

  • Please use hand sanitizer regularly 
  • Do not hold door open for others (exterior doors)
  • Please return home if you feel unwell (exterior doors)
  • Follow these steps to keep yourself and others healthy (restrooms)
  • Washing your hands to keep you safey (restrooms, sinks)
