March 15: Letter from President Stewart to Faculty and Staff

March 15 Email: Campus Announcement for Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues:

In consideration of Governor Ivey’s declaration of a state of emergency late Friday and to do all we can as a University family to curb the spread of the Coronavirus infection, we are extending spring break for non-critical staff effective tomorrow, March 16 at 8 a.m. through March 29. We will inform you via campus e-mail, as things progress. Please be sure to monitor your e-mail during your absence from campus concerning any alternative return to campus dates.

Per our business continuity plan, certain individuals deemed critical to the operation or financial health of the institution will be required to work on campus. Additionally, other staff may be requested to work remotely on essential efforts as assigned by your division head.

Please consult your supervisor if you have questions.

We strongly encourage you to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Alabama Department of Public Health to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy. Thank you for all you are doing as we move forward in a positive spirit during these very trying times.

John
