From Dr. Robin Myers

July 30, 2020


July has come and gone and we are getting ready for the fall semester.  I know that there are thousands of questions about how we are going to operate and maintain the health and wellness of both our students and staff.  Everyone has been working diligently to develop a plan for operations and we have that plan for your review attached.  Our Healthy Campus Plan will answer many of your questions, but I am certain there will be numerous issues that will cause us to modify our plan for the situations that could not be foreseen.  I am confident we will be able to address them as they arise.

I want to remind everyone that we have changed our start of semester date to August 24th (revised calendar attached).  This will coincide with most of the public schools in our area.  As a result of this change, I wanted to provide everyone with an overview of critical dates for campus activity.  We will conclude summer hours this week and begin regular hours on August 3rd.  Offices will once again operate from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. beginning next week.  For the weeks of August 3rd and August 10th we will still have some office operations working remotely.  Doors will be unlocked for student access beginning August 10th.  We want to stagger the return to campus so that we gradually are up to full staffing by August 17th.  I also want to remind all employees that the Family First Coronavirus Response Act provides for two weeks of paid leave should you be required to stay home or be hospitalized due to the virus.  Additionally, if you are required to care for a child due to school closure, there are two weeks, plus an additional 10 weeks available of partial paid leave through the Act.  I have included a quick reference of the Act for your review.  In all cases, we will try to arrange for remote working when possible in lieu of leave.

I also wanted to remind everyone that if you possess any of the factors mentioned in the at risk health or age references to the virus, we will arrange for remote working options for you if possible.  We don't want you to jeopardize your health by being potentially exposed to someone with the virus.  If you are in this situation, I urge you to contact Lindsey in HR and arrange with both her and your supervisor a remote working plan.  

There has been an incredible amount of work accomplished by many of our ASUMH colleagues to get us ready for the start of the semester.  I stand with them in wishing each of you a safe and healthy return to our campus environment and also remind you that we stand ready to modify our plans at a moment's notice, should conditions on our campus or in our communities change.

With Warmest Regards,

Robin Myers
