Dear Carlow Community,
Below are a few important reminders. Moving forward, note that we’re adjusting
our University Communication schedule to an as-needed basis.
Continue to regularly visit our
channels for COVID-19
PA COVID-19 Tracking App
At the recommendation of the Allegheny County Health Department, Carlow
University is asking all employees to download the state’s new “COVID Alert
PA” app. This free app can be easily downloaded to your cell phone from the
Apple Store or Google Play. It’s easy to use and is an effective tool for
reporting your own health and potential exposure. You also can receive helpful
information and alerts about your potential exposure to COVID-19 based on the
app’s contact tracing capabilities.
Disinfecting hardware (keyboard, mouse, touchscreen)
There has been some confusion surrounding the disinfection of hardware. The
use of misting disinfectant spray is allowed on keyboards, mouses, and
touchscreens – if you allow it to air dry. Disinfectant spray cannot be used on electronics, microphones, kiosks, or
We encourage you to visit the website for the weekly screening
and continue to
prior to coming on campus. These measures are working well. We’ve had an
extremely low number of failed screens since the beginning of the fall
semester. The weekly screening schedule adjusts according to need.
Planning an event?
If you are managing an event, be sure to submit an attendance
within 24 hours after your event.
Recognizing the need for additional study areas on campus, the University is
actively working with Facilities to identify and prepare classrooms to be
utilized as additional study areas.
Stay healthy and be well.
