UGA Griffin Guidelines and Practices for Re-Opening
On Monday June 15th, we began our Phase 1 reopening. This unprecedented pandemic has caused significant changes in our lives in many ways. It has been a challenge, on both personal and professional levels, to navigate through the last couple of months. I am hopeful that the light at the end of this tunnel will grow brighter in the coming days.
Many of you have sheltered in place during this crisis and some of you have intermittently come to the campus to perform essential tasks necessary for your work. In the coming weeks, your department or unit will be putting a plan in place to gradually bring us up to speed as we prepare to fully open in August. Departments are encouraged to utilize flexible schedules so that each employee can acclimate back into their settings.
We have developed a set of Guidelines and Practices for the Return to Work at the Griffin campus (link below). Please review these and exercise these protocols to mitigate risks. So far, our campus has been COVID free. In an effort to keep it that way, please, again, adhere to the guidelines. Please understand that this will be an adjustment for everyone on our campus. I ask that if there are any issues for which you may have concerns that pertain to campus operations, please notify your supervisor or me. We need to work closely in the next couple of months to conduct our business in a safe manner. Please keep the communication open.
The reopening is an evolving process. I will continue to forward information that is relevant to our campus as it comes in. I am looking forward to getting back to the new normal and I hope to see you on campus soon. Stay safe.
Please keep in mind some items are subject to change as the current situation is very fluid.
