Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility

Campus leaders have been working continuously to establish policies and protocols for the safety of the campus community. A safe and successful semester will require every one of us to understand our personal responsibility for ensuring our own safety and our collective responsibility to protect each other’s safety. We expect everyone in the community to stay informed about current campus requirements.

Return to Work Guidelines

Face Coverings and PPE

Employees should stay informed regarding current community levels and follow guidance accordingly.

Immunocompromised individuals and those at high risk for severe illness should take additional precautions such as wearing a high quality mask, avoiding non-essential indoor gatherings, having a plan for rapid testing, and discussing other needs with their health care provider.

If you have a household member or social contact with someone at high risk, please consider self-testing before contact and wearing a mask when indoors with them.

If an individual is unable to wear a face covering for a medical or health related reason, they must contact Human Resources (Kathleen x5961, kathleen.farrell@purchase.edu or Ricardo x6086, ricardo.espinales@purchase.edu ) immediately.

Sanitation

The campus Custodial staff will be focused on the intensive and frequent cleaning and disinfecting of public spaces. For this reason, and to minimize person-to-person contact in smaller office spaces, all employees are asked to perform the disinfecting for their own workspaces and high-touch surfaces (e.g. doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, telephones).

Facilities Management will provide disinfectant and sanitizer to every department.

If You’re Sick, Stay Home

Employee self-awareness and responsibility are critical to maintaining a healthier community. Employees should stay home if they are sick.

Vulnerable Populations

Employees who have underlying health issues, or are at increased risk for contracting the virus, should speak to the Reasonable Accommodation Officer.
