Adhering to health, safety guidelines essential to reopening
Dear Faculty and Staff,
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic is hitting our state and our community especially hard. The number of people infected, the rate of infection and the hospitalization rates are climbing.
The increased presence of the virus in our community creates a higher risk, not only to health, but to the ongoing operations of our university and our ability to carry out our jobs.
Preparing the campus for safe, in-person instruction in the fall is imperative. Therefore, ensuring our campus community is as healthy as possible by following health and safety guidelines is crucial.
The utmost responsibility lies with each of us to be aware of the guidelines on our health and safety and healthy habits pages of our Furman Focused website, and to follow them. Among the guidelines, all employees are required to:
If your department needs face coverings, hand sanitizer or other cleaning materials, please submit a work order request to Facilities Services.
We expect everyone to adhere to the Paladin Promise and take these measures very seriously, and to support each other so we can achieve full compliance. We will continue to monitor carefully the evolving conditions in the region. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
