Re-opening Campus & Returning to On-Site Work
Can I return to campus now that Pennsylvania is beginning to re-open?
Remote instruction will continue for all summer courses through August 1.
We are initiating a phased approach for carefully re-opening some activities on our Pittsburgh campus that support core educational and research activities. All faculty and staff should continue to work remotely until you are notified that you are permitted to resume on-campus working arrangements.
If permitted to return to campus, what safety precautions should I take?
Those who receive permission to return to campus will be required to follow precautionary measures, including the use of facial coverings, and other necessary changes to routines and behavior in order to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. More information is available on the Returning to On-Site Work page.
How do I know if I'm allowed back on campus?
Prior to returning to on-site work, employees must receive university approval and health clearance.
Please visit the Minimum Requirements to Return On-Site page for more information on mandatory steps for returning back to CMU facilities.
How do I get into my office, classroom or lab if I need to get into it for a one-time access?
CMU staff who have received permission to re-enter their work space should email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a day and time in which you may enter your workspace.
What safety equipment do I need and how do I get it?
Please visit the Minimum Requirements to Return On-Site page for more information on required safety equipment.
If you need specialized PPE equipment, please email Procurement Services at email@example.com.
If I'm a supervisor and someone is feeling ill, what do I do?
Employees who suspect they may be sick, should not come to their designated work location, but stay home and consult their healthcare provider. If employees begin to feel ill while on-site, they leave the premises, notify their supervisor immediately, and consult their healthcare provider.
If I need a space cleaned, what do I do?
Please refer to the “Sanitation and Disinfection” section of the Minimum Requirements to Return On-Site page for more information.
