Common Area Cleaning

Our custodial team, who are in our buildings every day, are here to take care of the cleaning of communal washrooms and common areas. But remember – they don’t do dishes!

Room capacities have been reduced – please follow the appropriate signage posted on common rooms. Don’t forget to wear a mask and wash your hands regularly when using common areas.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to tidy up after themselves and ensure common areas and hallways are clean and comfortable for everyone.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures have been put in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes disinfecting high touch point areas three times daily.

Please remember to regularly disinfect your hands by washing them with soap and water or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
