Advise to sanitize

Tech officials responded to a request for more hand sanitizer stations on campus and installed additional stations in the Roaden University Center.


“We have seen an uptick in requests to purchase those,” Tech’s Chief of Communications Officer Karen Lykins said.


Lykins confirmed hand sanitizer stations are in high demand this time of year, but the university is looking into getting two types of stations: bolted to the wall and free-standing.


According to Lykins, each department can request to purchase sanitizing stations with no additional charge for refills.


“That’s at the departments’ discretion and level to put them in high traffic areas,” she said.


Putnam County School Board proactively closed schools Monday and Tuesday in the midst of concerns of the flu and other viral infections spreading, as well as a suspected case of the Novel Coronavirus in a Tech student on Jan. 23.
