Coronavirus Information

March 24: Letter from President Stewart (Announcement for UM Staff)

Dear Colleagues:

We continue to do all we can as a University family to curb the spread of the coronavirus infection. Accordingly, we are asking that only essential staff return to campus the week of March 30-April 3. All employees, whether on campus or off campus, will continue to be paid during this time. Additional information will be provided on time and leave reports. Please be sure to monitor your e-mail regularly during your absence from campus. We will inform you via campus e-mail, as things progress.

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 during this time. 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.
