The following message is from the COVID-19 Implementation Team.

To all faculty and staff:

Welcome to 2021, which we believe to be a more hope-filled year. We are looking forward to having students back on campus for the spring semester, and we appreciate your continued hard work and flexibility. In keeping with our goal of minimizing risk, you are required to complete by Wednesday, January 13, 2021, the following COVID-19 related steps. This requirement applies even if you are joining us virtually.

  1. Take the Spring COVID-19 training in the Learning Center and sign-off on the Eagle Pledge. Instructions are at the bottom of this email.
  2. Fill out the Eagle Health Survey every day unless you are furloughed. The Eagle Health Survey will be emailed to your UMW inbox every morning.
  3. In order to create a healthier environment for all members of the University community, please limit your activities, interactions, and travel for 14 days prior to returning to campus to reduce your potential exposure to the virus. This includes adhering to UMW’s MMDC guidelines as well as all federal, state, CDC guidelines.
