Dear Faculty and Staff,
As this week comes to a close, please a few updates for your attention:
Remote Work Status Extended
All employees currently identified to perform in a remote capacity will remain
in that work status until after the return of the University holiday, January
4, 2021. The University will continue to evaluate this status in accordance
with the guidelines of the CDC, the Allegheny County Health Department and the
Common Good principles.
As previously shared, employees currently working remotely will receive at
least two-weeks’ notice of any return to work schedules by their manager if
their status will be changing based on University needs.
During this extended period, the Reentry and Resiliency Subgroup will finalize
and share details on revisions to remote work provisions for supplies and
other related needs, such as remote printing, within the next few weeks.
We recognize that employees working remotely may need to come on campus during
this time period. Remote employees must contact their supervisors in advance
before returning to campus. Additionally, all employees will be required to go
through one of the designated screening areas identified on campus at any time
when re-entering campus.
Screening Schedule Changes
Please note we are making
changes to the screening schedule, effective Monday, October 5. Everyone is encouraged to self-screen daily before coming to or going out
on campus. Also, everyone coming to campus should continue to complete a daily
screening and obtain a completed sticker. The full screening schedule can be
accessed on our
Visitor Policy and Events Protocols
Please be aware that new guidelines are in place to protect the safety and
health of everyone on campus at all times. All events should be held virtually
whenever possible. There will be no in-person events with the general public
or outside people (those who are not a part of the Carlow community).
Exceptions include faculty-invited speakers, guests of the Admissions Office,
and the President’s Office.
An event is defined as any in-person gathering of more than two people that
is not classroom instruction.
If holding an in-person event there are some considerations and new
requirements that are outline on the attached documentation. Attached as well
is the final Visitor Policy and Instructions and Waiver and Release Form for
your use with adherence to all guidelines therein.
