To de-densify the campus and ensure physical distancing, the gradual return to campus of faculty and staff will be phased over several months. Remote work, alternating days for in-person staffing and staggered arrivals/departures will be part of the gradual reopening.
All faculty and staff should complete the COVID-19 Employee Screening Checklist for symptom tracking/monitoring prior to coming to campus every day. Daily symptom monitoring and reporting must begin at least 14 days prior to arrival. Employees will also receive a reminder email each morning with a link to the survey. Individuals with fever and/or symptoms should call the University Health Center Heal Line at 301.405.HEAL (4325). A UHC health care professional will obtain additional information from the individual to determine next steps. These may include clearance to come to campus, COVID-19 testing, isolation, quarantine and/or symptom monitoring.
We encourage you to use the feedback form if you have questions specific to UMD and coronavirus. If you have a medical question or concern, please contact your physician.
Faculty and staff members not in compliance will be subject to employee progressive discipline measures.
We value input from our campus community. Please fill out our feedback form to share suggestions or report concerns about health and safety on campus.
