As promised, I am providing you with a daily update on what we have learned and any new measures put in place. I recently shared a message with faculty that went out to all students that outlines how they can access tutoring remotely. I would recommend that you include that message on your Canvas sites. I also announced the hours of the Library where students can access technology.
Today, I will focus on new travel advisories, more information about resources for teaching remotely and how everyone can help. We will share information tomorrow on staff working remotely. I will meet with all supervisors, chairs, deans, etc. at 8 a.m., and then they will be able to share our schedule going forward. Thank you for your patience as we try to make decisions as things continue to change quickly.
- Please see the notes below. If you are traveling internationally, you must self-quarantine and you must have supervisor / chair / dean permission.
- Due to the recent CDC and State Department advisories, everyone returning from any international travel must maintain a 14-day self-isolation period before returning to any IU campus. This is a critically important public health measure. There will be no exceptions.
- Any student, faculty member or staff member returning from a country under a CDC Level 3 warning must self-quarantine off campus for 14 days before returning to any IU campus. This is a critically important public health measure. There will be no exceptions. This requirement currently applies to China, Iran, South Korea and the 26 European countries in the Schengen Area; however, the CDC may add additional countries to the Level 3 list with little warning.
Students should make prior arrangements with their instructors if they will miss additional class time due to these new travel conditions.
For all IU employees, the absence must be approved by your immediate supervisor. Faculty and staff must make advance arrangements with their supervisors or school or campus leadership to assure continuity in performing their duties, and should prepare for a possible long-term stay should changes be implemented in any given country during their time abroad. For staff, this time off will need to come from your PTO.
