University on Pause
November 10, 2020
To University Supervisors:
Administrative offices should continue to operate with minimal on-campus staffing as they have all semester, including student employees essential to continued operations. Supervisors will continue to use their discretion regarding who needs to be on campus as circumstances change. Employees are not prohibited from coming to campus, so those not deemed essential who need to come to campus occasionally may continue to do so.
While the University will continue to provide an environment that meets or exceeds recommended safety measures, personal behavior continues to be the best defense in stemming the spread: mask wearing, hand washing, maintaining distance from others and avoiding gatherings. These behaviors will remain critically important during the pause.
