Transitioning from COVID-Work From Home to Fully In-Person Operations
On March 17th, the District of Columbia extended its public health emergency declaration to May 20, 2021. It also advised the University to begin implementing plans to safely increase the on-site presence of employees and contractors.
In parallel with the order, the University will maintain the COVID-Work From Home (C-WFH) into the early summer, with a plan to return to fully in-person operations as follows:
Extend our current C-WFH program from April 30 through July 2, allowing employees whose supervisors have determined that their work can be completed remotely to continue to work from home up to 2-3 days per week.
On July 6, (following the Independence Day holiday weekend), if health conditions allow for a full return to on campus activities, the C-WFH program will terminate.
Starting the week of termination of C-WFH, the Half-Day Fridays program will begin, and will continue through Friday, August 13.
Upon termination of the COVID-Work from Home program, the University will return to fully in-person operations and all employees are expected to be on campus for 100% of their efforts. Supervisors are asked to allow liberal use of annual and sick leave through the summer to support their employees as they navigate the transition.
