COVID-19 Related Signage Templates Available for Campus Use This Fall
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 signage reinforcing COVID-19 related health and safety precautions that are available for download.
As a way to make campus as safe as possible for all students, faculty, staff and visitors, roughly 70 signs in both English and Spanish are available to U of A employees for various areas such as entry/exits, classrooms, elevators, as well as sanitizing and disinfecting stations.
Individual departments should not make separate signage plans for their buildings as Building Executives have been designated as the primary point of contact for the posting of signage in university facilities. They have access to the signs and can provide guidance as to where signs should be located.
Contact your Building Executive prior to posting any COVID-19 related signage to ensure compliance with 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’s Tape.
- Do not use other types of tape, pushpins or glue to post signs.
- Do not mount to sheetrock, plaster, wallpaper or fabric covered walls.
- Do not mount signs in direct sunlight. Adhesives tend to break down in high temperature.
- Mount to glass windows or doors whenever possible.
- Mount to wood or metal trim only with approved adhesives.
- Adhesives should be removed and re-applied every 60 days
Building executives should refer to the signage placement guide when deciding where and how to place signs on campus.
