PRIOR TO RETURN
Your supervisor or manager will communicate the return-to-work plan for your unit.
Be aware of and comply with the Flashes Safe Seven principles. You are required to wear a cloth face covering while on campuses. The university will provide each employee with two cloth face coverings, as well as cleaning supplies for each unit. The person responsible for ordering for your department or campus will coordinate ordering these materials. Additionally, you are responsible for properly wearing the face covering as well as maintaining for its care and cleanliness. For further information concerning the care and proper wearing of the face covering, visit the CDC’s website.
- Wearing face coverings are a critical component to the Flashes Safe Seven principles. All who can safely wear face coverings are required to do so. We understand that not everyone may be able to wear a face covering. If you are concerned about wearing a face covering, please submit the Pandemic Adjustment Request. In addition, face coverings should never be worn by or placed on people who are younger than 2, have difficulty breathing, or are unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove them without assistance.
- In addition to the Flashes Safe Seven principles, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers additional online resources that address how to protect yourself and others.
