COVID-19 Information for Faculty and Staff

As the University community continues to plan for a phased return to campus, the Facilities, Safety and Health Work Group of the COVID-19 Task Force has developed a Guide for the Return to the Workplace to assist colleges and department leaders in considering guidelines to ensure a safe working environment.

Per the above guide, we are still in Phase I of return. All supervisors who have employees who are part of the critical infrastructure workforce (essential) and must come to campus are required to complete the attached COVID-19 Campus Access Listing form and e-mail it to the addresses provided on the form. Anyone who will be approved for this, will receive a letter from Public Safety to keep with them for traveling to and from campus.
