Annapolis Fall 2020—Faculty and Staff FAQ
Employees will return to working on-campus gradually over the course of the Fall 2020 semester. Additional information about returning to work will be provided in the coming weeks. We do understand that there may be a need to be on campus. Please limit these visits for only essential tasks and let your supervisor know. As a reminder, you are required to wear a mask and maintain a minimum of six feet of physical distancing. Please wash your hands frequently and stay home if you have any symptoms.
We understand that most K-12 school districts have announced that they will at least start the academic year with online instruction. We are asking supervisors to be flexible with staff regarding the time of day that work is performed so that parents have flexibility to assist children with remote schooling and other matters. Employees who have questions about the additional benefits available under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act should reference the FAQ available on the ADP homepage.
All persons on campus are required to wear masks that fully cover their mouths and noses when in indoor common and public areas of the college. This includes classrooms, meeting rooms, hallways, offices, and other shared spaces.
Staff and tutors are required to wear masks in private offices only when meeting with others. The use of masks is not required when in an office alone.
The college will provide all employees with a cloth face covering. It is recommended that you keep an extra face covering in your office or desk. Other PPE will be provided to employees based upon the specific requirements of your position. Frequent hand washing is strongly recommended, and hand sanitizer will be available in many locations throughout campus.
Strategies like social distancing, face coverings, and de-densification measures can only succeed at reducing risk with the vigorous participation of the entire campus community.
If you see someone not wearing a mask or not following other guidelines, we encourage community members to politely remind them to do so. Mitigating risks to the health and safety of the entire community is both a shared benefit and a shared responsibility. If you are uncomfortable addressing a situation directly with those involved, please seek out the support of Public Safety.
Please instruct the potential infected employee to remain at home until released by a physician or public health official. If a doctor’s note releasing the employee is unavailable, follow the CDC guidelines on when an employee may discontinue self-isolation, which contain specific requirements dependent upon whether the employee tested positive for COVID-19 and/or exhibited symptoms. Any employee on our health plans has access to Telehealth to get quick advice if a doctor’s appointment is not immediately available. Email Lynn Hobbs that we may have a case and send any documentation; if available, and any information relating to the employee’s symptoms/diagnosis.
