FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – With the University of Arkansas continuing to prepare for the return of students this fall, the campus community is encouraged to take advantage of the signage that reinforces the health and safety precautions related to COVID-19 that are available for download.
As a way to make the campus as safe as possible for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors, approximately 70 signs in English and Spanish are available to U of A employees in various areas, such as entrances / exits, classrooms , elevators, as well as disinfection and disinfection stations.
Individual departments should not make separate signage plans for their buildings, as the Building Executives have been designated as the primary point of contact for posting signage on university premises. They have access to the signs and can provide guidance on where the signs should be located.
Contact the Building Executive before posting any signage related to COVID-19 to ensure compliance with the posting guidelines.
Guidance for posting signage
- Use only removable mounting tape, such as Command-brand mounting strips, or removable painter's tape, such as Scotch-brand delicate surface painter tape.
- Do not use other types of tape, thumbtacks, or glue to affix posters.
- Do not mount it on drywall, plaster, wallpaper, or fabric covered walls.
- Do not mount signs in direct sunlight. Adhesives tend to decompose at high temperatures.
- Mount on glass windows or doors whenever possible.
- Mounts to wood or metal trim only with approved adhesives.
- Decals must be removed and reapplied every 60 days
Building executives should consult the signage placement guide when deciding where and how to place signs on campus.
