Keeping our Community Safe

The health and safety of our community is our top priority. To ensure that the LeBow College of Business is a safe learning and working environment for students, faculty and staff, new procedures have been established to access buildings and classrooms.

Before visiting campus, you need to:

  1. Complete the Drexel Health and Safety Training and sign the Dragon Pledge on Career Pathway or Blackboard
  2. Download Drexel’s Health Tracker app and use it to check-in two hours before visiting campus

While on campus, remember to:

  • Wear a face mask
  • Maintain distance (at least 6 feet apart)
  • Wash your hands frequently

Testing

All members of the Drexel community who will be returning to campus this fall were tested for COVID-19 by an outside vendor, InHouse Physicians. Drexel is currently preparing clear recommendations for the community going forward on who will be recommended to get tested as part of a surveillance testing plan. These decisions will be based on the latest scientific evidence and best practices outlined by health and industry experts. More information regarding these testing plans will be provided to the Drexel community soon.

Building and Spaces

In addition to asking visitors to comply with the above safety guidelines, visitors are asked to adhere to posted signage in each building.

Increased Cleaning and Sanitation
All facilities will be cleaned twice a day. High-touch surfaces will receive additional cleaning throughout the day (e.g., bathrooms, door handles, light switches, computer lab keyboards/mice, elevator buttons, water fountains, etc.). Hand sanitizer stations have been placed at entrances and exits.

Facilities is adjusting ventilation systems in all buildings to improve air filtration and circulation, including routine cleaning, updating and optimizing HVAC systems. These procedures ensure that HVAC systems are filtering out airborne pathogens.
