With the spring decision, how will the College determine who continues to work from home?
Divisional vice presidents (or equivalent) will continue to make determinations on which staff members can fulfill professional obligations from home. Faculty and staff who need to be on campus and also need teaching/working accommodations due to health vulnerabilities or other factors should submit this brief form to HR. In addition, faculty and staff who may need flexibility in their work day to support caregiving needs should speak directly with their immediate supervisor or department head.
Where can I find updated information about working on campus?
Read the guide for returning to the workplace.
How do I get access to PPE as an employee who has worked remotely this fall semester?
If you do not have your own mask, contact your supervisor as two masks were allotted for all community members in the beginning of the fall semester.
Will COVID-19 testing be mandatory for faculty and staff working on campus?
Yes, they must get tested in the week prior to the start of the semester. Faculty teaching in the classroom and staff designated as “high student facing” will be tested more regularly throughout the semester. Depending on the specific activities involved, testing could be as frequent as once per week. More information on those designated as high student facing will be available before the start of the spring semester.
What should an employee do if they believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19?
We have an arrangement with Lehigh Valley Health Network to help with individual situations and questions. Learn more about the process.
