Faculty and Staff
Last updated: June 22, 2020 — (11:50 a.m. MDT)
As many employees and students come back to work before the fall semester, we all have a personal responsibility to:
- Maintain physical distance
- Wear face coverings
- Keep classroom and office spaces clean
- Practice good hygiene
- Stay home when we are sick
Employees are to take their temperature and assess symptoms each day, prior to coming to work. The general symptoms assessment includes checking for: cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, decreased sense of smell/taste, and/or sore throat, and a fever greater than 100.4.
Faculty, staff and students are required to properly wear face coverings in settings that make social distancing difficult, or not practical, or under circumstances where it is otherwise mandated. Face coverings are required inside all campus buildings, per Gov. Gary Herbert's executive order.
You must not come to work on campus if you are sick, particularly if you are displaying COVID-19-like symptoms.
Coming Back to Work
Some employees will return to working on campus July 13 to prepare for the fall semester. All employees are expected to return to campus with all buildings being open by August 3.
Exceptions to this will include individuals with:
- Health related accommodations processed through Human Resources
- Long term work from home agreements
- Those who are sick
More information about coming back to work can be found on the Human Resources website.
This guidance is subject to change. We know that our cases across the state have increased in the last two weeks, and we are hoping that this will level out by the time we approach fall semester. We ask that you remain adaptable as we navigate this return to campus together.
Weber State University plans to resume in-person, on-campus instruction for the 2020 fall semester with additional online and virtual options as well.
The individual class delivery formats will remain consistent throughout the semester, even if the state or region moves to a new risk level. The only possible change to delivery format would occur if the state or region changes back to Moderate or High Risk Phase. If that happens, the current plan would be to move on-campus courses to virtual or online.
The new schedule assumes that the state and region will be in the low risk (yellow) level when school starts Aug. 24. As a result, some courses scheduled to be taught on campus will change in their delivery format to follow all safety guidelines detailed in the WSU Phased Health Guidelines.
