COVID-19 Information for Faculty/Staff: Employees 65 or Older and/or High Risk Medical Condition

Abstract image of campus science building.

I am 65 years old but do not have a serious medical condition; does this mean I can come into work?

All employees who can work from home should continue to do so for Summer and Fall 2020. Administrators should continue to support telecommuting and flexible schedules. If there are critical operational needs to warrant increasing on-campus staffing, please work with your respective Vice President for approval.

Employees who are 65 or older and/or have a high-risk medical condition identified by the CDC may be asked to work on campus. Such employees may request an accommodation or leave of absence. Consistent with our accommodation process, medical certification will be required.
