What is the official guidance from University leadership regarding faculty and staff staying home if they feel sick?

The health of the Penn State community is our highest priority, and we must all do our part in preventing the possible spread of coronavirus. Penn State faculty and staff are encouraged to stay home if they feel sick, particularly if they have a fever. We are asking faculty and employee supervisors to be flexible with work and class absences.
