COVID-19 Update - Staff and Faculty Operational

Posted on Monday, March 16th, 2020

Below is an excerpt from the "Message from the President Re: Operational Changes Due to COVID-19":

"Currently, all three U of G campuses remain open. Following recommendations from Public Health about social distancing to slow the spread of the virus, the University is implementing several changes.

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, employees are asked to work from home when operationally possible. Employees who are required to perform a critical function and/or whose physical presence is necessary to perform their work as determined by their supervisor will need to continue to come to campus. Please speak to your supervisor for clarification as to whether you are required to work on campus. The University will work to minimize the disruption of this change on staff members.

Business continuity plans for colleges, departments and units will be put into effect to allow for the continuation of critical services. Some units may opt to reduce service offerings while continuing to deliver their core academic and research services and other supports on campus. These must be approved by supervisors."
