Information for Faculty & Staff

We have made updates to our COVID-19 safety protocols and operations. 

Physical Distancing: All departments and units should begin to transition to normal occupancy in common areas (e.g., offices, break rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, etc.). At this time, current Plexiglas dividers and hand sanitizers will remain in place.

Face Coverings: Effective immediately, face coverings will no longer be required campus-wide.

Those who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue wearing face coverings in accordance with CDC guidelines. Individuals who are fully vaccinated can continue to wear face coverings on campus if they choose to do so. As we make this transition, please continue to treat each other with respect and grace. 

Vaccines: Our ability to loosen these restrictions are a powerful reminder of the benefits of getting vaccinated, and we continue to encourage everyone to be vaccinated as soon as they are able.

*FAQs will be updated soon to reflect these new safety protocols.

Employees returning from a country subject to a CDC Level 3 or above Travel Notice may not return to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of the 14-day self-isolation period prescribed by the CDC, IDPH, or Department of Homeland Security. Employees returning from a cruise will also be subject to this 14-day self-isolation requirement and should not come to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of this period. Employees must report such travel or cruise activity by completing this survey. Employees who are required to self-isolate may telework as access and responsibilities allow. Otherwise, they will be expected to use accrued sick leave, vacation, or comp time, as applicable, to remain in paid status. If no accruals are available for use, those who are ‘hourly paid salary’ or ‘salaried’ will code Off Duty (unpaid leave) on their timecard.
