LeBow COVID-19 Response

Mario the Dragon Statue, Drexel University

Keeping Our Community Safe

The health and safety of our community is our top priority.

Remember:

  • All on-campus students, faculty, professional staff and post-docs must be fully vaccinated. All eligible students, faculty, professional staff and post-docs must get a booster and record it in the Drexel Health Checker. Booster shots are available on campus. Questions about vaccination? Call 215-703-2335.
  • Masking remains mandatory in all Drexel buildings. Preventing classroom transmission is critical to our ability to hold in-person classes. We recommend KF94, KN95 or other NIOSH-approved, valveless respirator masks. While 2-layer, surgical face masks with wire clips are still somewhat effective, strongly consider doubling up with a surgical mask underneath a cloth mask that fits snugly against your face. All masks should completely cover your nose and mouth and fit well to prevent air escaping out of openings in the masks while still being comfortable. Bandanas, balaclavas, scarves, neck gaiters and masks with ventilation valves are NOT permissible indoors at Drexel.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to do their part to keep the Drexel community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you see any activity or suspect any behavior that violates the University’s COVID-19 Code of Conduct, make an online report.

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.
