Important Campus Information

A message from the COVID Implementation Team:

Dear Colleagues:

With the majority of students moving off campus for the next two months, the COVID Implementation Team has recommended that the campus resume several of the practices that were in place during the spring and summer before students returned.  The Cabinet has approved this recommendation, which includes the following:

  • Building access: Beginning Monday, November 23, all buildings will remain locked; access to each building will be limited to those who work in the building and visitors with appointments.  Deliveries and other individual department needs will need to be coordinated as they were during the spring and summer.
  • Telework: While many employees have continued to telework throughout the year, some employees needed to return to campus in order to provide in-person services when students returned.  With students gone again, the need for that campus presence is expected to be greatly reduced, and all departments are strongly urged to reassess teleworking options for employees who have been working on campus, and allow telework wherever possible.
  • Thanksgiving precautions: The COVID Implementation Team encourages adherence to the CDC guidelines regarding the Thanksgiving holiday.

And finally, whether on or off-campus, continue to follow UMW’s MMDC guidelines.

We are grateful to each of you for everything you’ve done to help us mitigate the COVID risk for our students, staff and faculty.

On behalf of the entire team, we wish you a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving break – you’ve earned it!
