Changing guidance on COVID-19

April 7, 2023

As you may know, the federal COVID-19 emergency declaration is expected to expire no later than May 11, 2023. 

While we wait for an official date for the national emergency’s expiration, university leaders are reviewing federal guidance and preparing for how these changes will affect students and employees across the system.

We are planning to share more information at the end of April and anticipate changes to our policies and procedures, such as guidelines around sick leave and testing. We understand that these changes may require some adjustments and appreciate your cooperation as we work to keep our universities safe for everyone.

In the interim, please continue to stay informed about COVID-19, and follow all recommended safety measures, including practicing good hygiene. We also encourage you to reach out to your supervisor or HR coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work through these changes.
