Frequently Asked Questions

When do I need to come back to campus to work?

Many employees returned to on-campus work beginning in July; however, your weekly schedule will be determined by your supervisor. In general, you can expect work may be hybrid and build toward greater openness by the fall. We recommend COVID-19 safety training for employees who plan to return to campus to work or to pick up materials.

Do I need to wear a face mask or practice physical distancing while working on campus?

The University continues to require all employees to wear face mask while working indoors or in a vehicle, unless you are working alone. Face masks are recommended outdoors in crowded settings. Face masks are available to all employees. You can request an N95 respirator mask to wear voluntarily (vaccinated or not) on the Risk Management and EHS website using the N95 Respirator Request Form for Voluntary Use.

Physical distancing and barrier requirements have been eliminated. However, if you have removed your face mask to eat or drink, physical distancing is required.
