Notice about Drinking Fountains 

Dear Kent State University Staff,

Public drinking water supplies are safe to drink, however, the surfaces around drinking fountains, including the spout, button/lever and nozzles, could pose a risk for the transmission of COVID-19 and other germs. Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises drinking fountains can be used if cleaned regularly, in order to provide a safe environment and reduce the workload on our limited custodial staff, all drinking fountains will be turned off until further notice.

Water bottle fill stations will remain active.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your cooperation.

Thank you,

Facilities Planning and Operations
