Latest Update for Faculty and Staff
SEpt. 20, 2021
The Re-entry Committee has several new updates to share with you.
Status of OSHA Vaccine Mandate
Earlier this month, President Biden announced that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) soon would require all private employers with more than 100 employees to require workers to become vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 tests. This is expected to affect colleges and universities as well; however, the details are unclear at this time.
The OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) is expected to be released soon, possibly this week. The Re-entry Committee is watching this closely and will keep the University community updated as developments arise.
COVID-19 Vaccines Still Available
We continue to strongly encourage all faculty and staff to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have not been vaccinated and would like to be, please contact Birkam Health Center at x2614, Option 2, to set up an appointment. Or, you can visit www.vaccines.gov for area vaccination sites across the state.
Once you are fully vaccinated, please document your “Fully Vaccinated for COVID-19 Documentation” status in the symptom checker. The form is located directly under “COVID-19 Daily Check-in for Employees.”
