Health and Safety
As part of the UNCSA community, review and familiarize yourself with our Community Health Standards. The revised standards are in place June 1-July 31, 2021. You do not need to be tested to return to campus.
If a staff member has concerns about returning to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic that are related to an underlying health condition, the employee may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation depending on their circumstances. Each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, as governed by applicable laws and policy. Please contact Angela Mahoney in Human Resources to learn more about your options.
Any staff member who would like to request a flexible work arrangement from their direct supervisor should submit the Teleworking Form. Requests not related to a health condition will be considered according to the procedures in UNCSA Regulation 630 for Flexible Work and Telework.
COVID-19 Response Plan for EmployeesThe COVID-19 Response Plan for Employees (enter your UNCSA credentials to access PDF) explains how UNCSA will respond when an employee exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 in the workplace, at home, and or tests positive/negative for COVID-19. The goal of this plan is to help protect the health and safety of the employee and everyone else in the workplace. Effective execution of the plan requires collaboration, compassion, and attention to detail by employees, supervisors/managers, Human Resources, Facilities, Emergency Operations, and University leadership. If you have any questions or concerns about this plan, please contact Human Resources.
