University of Malta Gets Deep Clean & Disinfection As Staff Return To Offices 👌

University of Malta is taking no risks in its handling of the pandemic, intensifying its cleaning and disinfection efforts as most UM staff return to their offices. Strict infection prevention measures (in line with guidelines given by the Health Authorities) are being implemented to ensure the safety of all those on campus.

Outdoor campus areas are being disinfected regularly in protective gear. Disinfected areas include campus entry points, the Gateway Building area, all outdoor seating areas, and the quadrangle, among others. 

Staff on campus are having their temperature checked every morning at UM entry points by means of non-contact thermometers. On top of that, single access entrances in each building ensure easy monitoring people flowing in and out of each building. 

Face masks are being provided to all staff members, and must be worn whenever visiting another office. UM drivers and those using university transport are also being asked to wear a mask in transit.  

Hand sanitisers are being installed at the main entrances of each building and staff must sanitise their hands upon entering each building, with notices being put up to discourage non-essential visits.

UM Rector Prof. Alfred J. Vella thanked staff members for their support, going on to state that "the enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols being put in place are proof that we are proactively taking all the necessary precautions to keep our community safe".

Props to University of Malta for handling the health side of the pandemic with such care, helping to put the minds of staff & students alike at ease 😊 🙏
