PLANS FOR RETURNING TO THE KU CAMPUS IN THE WEEKS AHEAD
The KU Emergency Management Committee (EMC) continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 color coded phase. The following is the plan for KU employees to return to campus:
Today, Berks County moved to the Yellow Phase, lifting some of the restrictions that have been in place since March.
– Teleworking is encouraged in the Yellow Phase where possible. KU will continue to implement telework during this phase for non-essential employees, where feasible.
– When Berks County moves to the Green Phase, KU will begin to bring employees back to campus.
– Some offices will have employees return through a phased process, depending on the office and staff size.
– Social distancing and other safety measures will be in effect for all workers upon return to campus.
– Employees with health concerns related to an in-person return, will receive further information regarding protocols.
– Expanded leave will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and employee hours will be adjusted for in-person work as possible and/or necessary.
