PPE kits coming to eStores August 17

Ohio State prepares thousands of kits for safe return to campus

As part of the safe return to campus requirements, face masks must be worn on Ohio State’s campuses. Masks must be put on before entering indoor or enclosed spaces and in outdoor spaces where people cannot maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet between each person. 

Additionally, a daily health check to report body temperature and health status will be required for all faculty, staff and students each day they intend to be on Ohio State’s campuses. This daily check will be reported through the Ohio State mobile app or compass.osu.edu.

To help the university community meet these requirements, return-to-campus kits will be provided to students, faculty and staff before classes resume. The kits include one disposable mask, two reusable masks, a thermometer, disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer.

For faculty and staff, return-to-campus kits will be available at no cost through the university’s e-store program. Faculty kits will include chalk, markers and supplies to clean the boards in their classrooms. Department managers or human resources staff can procure the kits for faculty and staff before they return to campus. The e-store is expected to have kits available on Aug. 17.
