Thank you for your hard work and dedication as we continue to navigate challenges presented by the pandemic. Our top priority is the health and safety of the University of Miami community. All members of the community are required to adhere to safety standards established for the campuses and the workplace. Today, we are sharing important reminders to help ensure our continued success fighting the pandemic:
As previously communicated, the COVID-19 Return to Onsite Work Policy
outlines these requirements in detail. Consistent with other University policies, failure to follow these guidelines and the procedures outlined in the policy may result in corrective action up to and including warnings, unpaid leave, and potential termination of employment. Following these guidelines can help ensure a successful, productive, and healthy academic year. We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to the health and safety of our University of Miami community.
You are required to participate in contact tracing and testing efforts. If you are contacted by the University to participate in contact tracing, you must respond quickly and be forthcoming in identifying anyone within the University community with whom you have had close contact.
You are required to comply with any instructions requiring that you quarantine for having close contact with someone known or suspected of having contracted the virus, self-isolate, or be tested for COVID-19.
You are required to truthfully conduct daily symptom monitoring and follow any guidance prior to reporting to any of our campuses. This also includes not coming to work if you feel unwell, before being cleared through Employee Health.
You are required to receive the seasonal flu vaccine. Exemptions for documented health and religious reasons may be requested.
You are required to adhere to personal health and safety guidelines. All members of the University community are required to wear a mask or face covering while in public areas and adhere to physical distancing protocols.
