Guidance for Faculty and Staff

Working Remotely
As of March 25, all employees not deemed on-campus essential have been expected to work from home. A limited number of employees considered essential are permitted to come to work to provide services for students who remain on campus. All faculty who require on-campus resources to teach their courses online also are permitted to be on campus during this time. On-site activities at St. Thomas must be in accordance with social distancing guidelines.

Resources for Faculty and Staff
Please note you will need your St. Thomas log-in details to access some of these links.

University Travel
All university-sponsored travel was suspended starting March 19 until further notice.

If you are considering personal travel, you should read the CDC’s travel health notices, and be prepared for isolation or quarantine before returning to campus.

The medical plans offered by St. Thomas continue to adapt based on the evolving needs of testing and treatment for COVID-19. Employees who utilize these medical plans should stay pay attention to the emails from HR, which are also archived on the COVID-19 page for Staff on OneStThomas.
