University employees will receive their coverings from their division’s University Council representative beginning the week of Aug. 3. They can contact their representative for more information.

Health system employees will continue to wear existing PPE and have their face coverings distributed at a later date.

Also, the university has added more virtual resources to support students and employees as they return to campus on their campus reopening website. Some of the new additions include new flow charts for the proper protocol if someone believes they have been exposed to COVID-19 or begin to experience symptoms.
