What if the pandemic takes a turn and number of cases increases again?
The University may need to adjust the return to onsite work process based on factors related to the pandemic. In these situations, a unified process will be established to minimize the density on campus to adjust to changing factors. In these scenarios each unit’s RTW taskforce and Pandemic Safety Officers will develop these “off ramps” or alternate plans for the fall semester should COVID conditions and resultant health and safety guidelines preclude the full return of staff to campus. These plans would include analyzing each of the phased groupings and make determinations about which employees should continue remote work based on their roles and responsibilities similar to the process that was utilized to identify returning employees on-site during the summer.
