If an employee’s temperature is 100.4°F or above before reporting to campus, they should not come to work and should contact their supervisor about the need to work remotely (if possible) or use a sick day.

In addition, employees who feel ill, or who exhibit any of the following symptoms before coming to work should not come to campus, and should contact their supervisor about the need to work remotely (if possible) or use a sick day: cough, chills, shortness of breath, repeated shaking with chills, difficulty breathing, headache, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, feeling feverish or diarrhea

Employees are required to contact a healthcare provider for guidance and to get tested for COVID-19 upon exhibiting any of these symptoms.

Employees who appear to be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival at work or who become sick during the workday should immediately separate themselves from other individuals, notify their supervisor and leave campus. Promptly following departure from campus, the employee should notify the Division of Human Resources.

An employee who has been in close contact with a person confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 should contact a healthcare provider for guidance on whether they should be tested for COVID-19 and whether they should self-quarantine prior to coming to campus.

If an employee tests positive for COVID-19, the employee should contact their supervisor and the Division of Human Resources and may not return to campus until symptoms subside and a 14-day self-quarantining period has been completed. Such employees will also be required to provide information concerning close contacts and otherwise cooperate with all contact tracing efforts.
