In her role as the infection preventionist for the UF Health Screen, Test and Protect Program, Cindy Prins, Ph.D., clinical associate professor of epidemiology and assistant dean for educational affairs for the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, offers infection control assessments for UF entities who aim to resume activities throughout campus.
Since August 2020, Prins has conducted 25 site visits, 50 virtual meetings and countless email exchanges with staff across UF to offer best practices for lowering the risk of COVID-19 transmission during events and in inside spaces. It’s a collaborative process, Prins said, as many UF entities create individual safety plans that she can build upon with guidance related to physical distancing and cleaning procedures.
“I’ve been so impressed with how hard everyone is working to do whatever they can to give students things to do while trying to be as safe as possible,” Prins said. “It’s been great to work with amazing people who have put so much thought into what they’re doing and how they can do it safely.”Learn more about Dr. Cindy Prins Assesses Spaces Across UF Campus for COVID-19 Transmission Risks.
