COVID-19 – Responsibility and Training

Administrative activities, outside of those required to support on-site research or education activities, will continue to work remotely until further direction is received from the University.

Administrative staff that are required to be on-site will be required to take the Preventing COVID-19 Infection in the Workplace training, will receive site specific safety information, will have access to workspaces with appropriate spacing, and common areas and hallways will have appropriate signage to reinforce adherence to physical distancing requirements.

For staff and faculty who have been approved to resume research activities please refer to the appropriate safety plan for your site.  It is the PIs responsibility to ensure that the plans are adhered to and safety protocols are in place.
