Keeping MIT Shining
Cleaning Requests during COVID-19
As always, additional cleaning services can be requested following the instructions below. Please note that special decontamination procedures are only required for spaces occupied by individuals who are suspected of having COVID-19 (i.e., are being tested and/or awaiting results) or have been confirmed as positive. In the absence of a suspected/confirmed COVID-19 case, routine disinfection procedures are sufficient.
If your office has a possible exposure related to COVID-19, please first contact MIT Medical, and then call Marty O’Brien, senior manager of Campus Services. Marty can arrange for the services you need and can be reached at 617-253-6728 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or on his cell at 617-593-8997.
