information items

Custodial Cleaning Update

Facilities is suffering from the same staffing shortage that many employers are experiencing right now. Because of this, we may have trouble maintaining the high standard of cleaning that we have historically provided. There are likely to be delays in the normal cleaning of offices and office complexes beyond the new cleaning standards that went into place last year; this may include delays in gathering recycling from office spaces. We will focus on cleaning open, public, areas as we try to keep UVU a warm and inviting place for students and visitors and we appreciate your understanding as we work through these staffing issues.
