Welcome to Opal Group’s Clean Facilities & Operations Summit Virtual Series: Education

Turning Ideas into Actions

Interactive and Collaborative Spaces to Discuss Social-Distancing Strategies, Sanitizing, Workforce Alterations and New Learning Models

As the world continues to grapple with COVID-19, the urgency to keep everyone safe and healthy remains the top priority. Educational facilities continue to play a major role during the pandemic. As administrators proceed with plans of reopening their buildings for students and staff, protocols and strategies for social distancing and safety remain at the forefront. What will school look like this upcoming academic year?

The Clean Facilities & Operations Summit is a virtual conference focused on the operations of facilities, maintaining cleanliness, preserving the safety of staff and consumers as well as construction in a COVID-19 world. The conversation will continue to change how educational institutions and communities are able to reinvent and adapt post quarantine as well as share ideas and learn from each other to plan for what’s next.

Opportunities to Learn, Share, Collaborate & Unite During Crisis
Our goal is to deliver an experience that is engaging and highly participatory through a series of virtual summits focused around sanitized facilities and safe operations. We are providing a platform to join your facility peers from different industries across the country that are also facing a similar battle. Share your stories and collaborate in creative problem-solving to tackle issues we are all facing in light of the pandemic.
