We are following the CDC recommendations including enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols, with increased frequency and scope, for our building common areas with a focus on high touch surfaces. All building personnel will wear masks. Our building employees are following best practices with respect to wearing masks in accordance with CDC guidance and local ordinances. In addition, the following steps continue in effect:
-Hand sanitizing stations are in place at every entrance and in the ground floor elevator lobby.
-Enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices by our janitorial team with additional wipe downs of high touch surfaces in the building utilizing EPA-registered disinfectants which meet criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2.

-Tenants are required to follow local regulations for cleaning requirements. The night janitorial crew will continue to perform enhanced cleaning of tenant spaces. If a tenant wants additional cleaning services, they can be provided upon request at an additional cost.
