From the Senior Vice President
and Senior Vice Chancellor

May 22, 2020 Update

As we enter into a long holiday weekend, I want to thank everyone for your continued efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. During Phase II, it's important that we remain diligent in taking the precautions we've all become familiar with—thorough handwashing, practicing social distancing, wearing masks, and disinfecting surfaces and workspaces.

Those of you cleared to return to the workplace will begin this process during Phase II. While the majority of employees should continue to work from home, ALL employees, including both those who have already re-entered and those who will be returning, must complete a new training produced by our UTIA Coronavirus Task Force. The fifteen-minute training will be available in K@TE next week, and you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the modules.

Also, those who are already coming into the workplace need to take a daily self-health assessment which clears you to be present before you enter your workspace. Instructions on how to create a link on your phone, whether an android or iPhone, can be found on the UTIA coronavirus website.

Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend as we honor those who have sacrificed so much for our country!
