COVID-19 Medical Requests for Accommodations

Carnegie Mellon University provides reasonable accommodations to staff and faculty members with disabilities to enable them to perform the essential functions or duties of their positions. An accommodation is deemed “reasonable” by the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) unless the accommodation would fundamentally alter the nature of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, or advantages offered or would result in an undue burden, i.e., significant difficulty or expense.

Requests for medical accommodations relating to COVID-19 will be evaluated using the same process for requesting accommodations for other medical conditions. For additional information about requesting accommodations, please refer to Accommodations for Faculty and Staff Members.

Continuation of Accommodations for Fall 2021 Semester

If you received a COVID-19 medical work accommodation for the Spring 2021 semester, you must submit a new request through the standard process for faculty and staff accommodation requests.
