FAQ – Staff

Is the campus closed? Should I report to work?

At this time, the campus is closed until further notice. Check your work email regularly throughout the day and remain available to meet with your supervisor and colleagues through remote technology. All employees are expected to be available to work on an as-needed basis and need to respond to emails or calls from their supervisors.

Will I be working remotely?

We are researching telecommuting or remote work protocols, keeping in mind that many challenges need to be addressed regarding position function and confidentiality. More information on telecommuting and remote working will be forthcoming.

What if I am sick?

Any employee who feels sick or displays symptoms related to COVID-19 should self-quarantine at home and arrange to be tested ASAP. Please let your manager know if your absence is directly related to COVID-19.

What if I test positive for COVID-19?

Any employee who tests positive for COVID-19 must self-quarantine at home and let their manager know as soon as possible for reporting purposes.

How long will this change last?

We intend to evaluate the implementation on an ongoing basis and to make a formal re-evaluation of the plan at the end of spring recess, on April 13.

What should I do if I become aware of a case of COVID-19/Coronavirus that has a connection to the campus?

Do not work in isolation. As soon as realistically possible, reach out to your immediate management supervisor and request their assistance. If this takes place after hours, you can expand the response by contacting Campus Safety, which is available 24/7. Officers can be reached at (714) 484-7387.
