SAU plans for a safe return to campus operations.
June 15 – Phased staff return to work on rotating teams.
- Departments large enough to require phased return will consist of two teams -Blue Team and Gold Team.
- For departments large enough to use the team design, team members will work on campus 2 days and remotely 2 days each week.
- The purpose of this design is to assist with implementation of safety protocols and identify processes that require refinement prior to a full capacity return.
- Admissions Tour Scheduling Begins
- Athletic Tour Scheduling Begins
July 6 – All offices and departments return at full capacity
- Panda Express opens for take-out only
How do I know which team I am on, if teams are necessary in my department?
Staff should contact their direct supervisor to discuss the return to campus plan for their department.
Do I have to return to work if I have a pre-existing condition or family health concern and believe I need to continue working remotely?
Effective June 15, approval will be required to continue full-time remote work. Employees who need to continue this practice should complete the request to work remotely form located on the SAU website. Employees will receive official notification regarding their request from human resources once the review process is complete.
What additional safety measures will be provided in my workspace?
Hand sanitizers and cleaning supplies will be available to all departments. Acrylic shields will be placed in high traffic areas. Laser thermometers will be available for screenings. Disposable masks will be available to all departments to provide any visitor who arrives without a face covering.
Will face-to-face meetings resume?
Until further notice, all meetings should continue to be held virtually whenever possible. Meetings of no more than 3 persons may be held with proper social distancing guidance being utilized. To host a face-to-face meeting for greater than 3 persons, please email the Task Force with your request.
Will face coverings be required?
Yes. Face coverings are required…
- to enter a building
- to move about inside a building
- to attend any face-to-face meeting
Will face coverings be required while sitting at a desk and working?
No. While working in personal offices or workstations without the presence of others face coverings are not required. If an acrylic desk shield is in use, face coverings may not be necessary when interacting with others provided that the desk shield provides a sufficient barrier.
When interacting with others without the presence of a desk shield or if someone impedes personal space without the shield as a barrier, face coverings should be used.
Will SAU provide masks?
SAU has ordered and will provide 2 reusable Mulerider logoed masks to each employee when these masks arrive. Currently, the masks are scheduled to arrive the first week of August. Employees should be prepared to return to work and provide their own face coverings, now considered part of daily apparel. Disposable masks will be available to departments and may be used by an employee who arrives on campus without proper face coverings.
Do departments need to request the additional cleaning supplies and PPE?
No. The process for supply delivery is underway and there is no need to make an initial request. Employees will need to contact the physical plant to restock supplies.
