Subject: FAQs for employees related to COVID-19
Dear Faculty, Staff, and Administrators,
The immediate risk at Loyola remains low, but we are preparing for the possibility that the coronavirus could cause a public health threat to the University community. Loyola’s Emergency Management Team is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maryland Department of Public Health closely.
The office of human resources has prepared FAQs for employees related to COVID-19.
If you are traveling this week or in the days ahead, please be aware that if you travel in an area of known risk/exposure as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you must contact your supervisor prior to returning to campus. Given the incubation period of the illness, you will be advised to remain off campus for the CDC’s 14-day self-incubation period at home. Then you will check in with your supervisor prior to returning to campus to ensure you are asymptomatic.
Please see the guidance on our FAQs for employees related to COVID-19 page and be in touch with your supervisor if you have any questions.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our workplace healthy and safe.
The Office of Human Resources
