PPE & Personal Safety

Ensuring the health and safety of the campus community is everyone's responsibility. As we return to life and work on Bucknell's campus, it's important that faculty and staff follow key health and safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  

Information about important personal safety changes and how to order personal protective equipment can be found below.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Cleaning Supplies

All employees will be provided with a washable cloth mask. Branded cloth masks can also be ordered through the Print, Publications & Mail online storefront (login required). 

In order to distribute additional personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies efficiently, each department/office has been assigned a point of contact who will order supplies for their department/office weekly through Bucknell Facilities. Contact this person to order the following supplies:

  • Masks (disposable non-woven three-ply ear loop)
  • Transparent masks
  • Gloves (disposable, one size fits all)
  • Face shields
  • Hand sanitizer (4 oz. bottles)

Requests should reflect the fact that orders will be filled weekly; please do not stockpile supplies. PPE requests will be funded centrally and not charged to departments.
