Safety reminder regarding fire alarms and building evacuations

The following message is sent on behalf of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety:

In the event of a fire alarm on campus, it is important to follow current health and safety guidelines for face coverings and social distancing when exiting the building. It is good practice to keep a mask readily accessible, especially at night.

When a fire alarm activates, all occupants of the building are required to evacuate. Please put on a face mask if accessible and exit the building. Try to maintain six feet of distance between yourself and others as you exit, as well as when gathering outside the building.

For those in isolation and quarantine, it is imperative to wear a mask and maintain distance when exiting the building and when gathering outside until the emergency is over.
