It is our understanding that the state of New Jersey may be announcing new restrictions on certain businesses and public activities over the weekend, possibly as early as tomorrow. We do not know what these new guidelines will specifically entail, but it is our expectation that we will continue to be able to support our undergraduate and graduate students who remain on campus, and to continue moving forward with remote classes starting on Monday.
All University personnel who are currently slated to be on campus Saturday should assume that their presence is still required. As soon as we have more details on any new statewide guidelines we will share them with you, including any impacts on our workforce and on our remaining residential students.
Whether on campus or elsewhere, thank you for everything you are doing to help slow the spread of this pandemic, including careful hand-washing and social distancing. If you are not feeling well, please make sure to get the care you need, and if you have been tested for COVID-19, please contact UHS at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will continue to update the University COVID-19 website with the latest policies and guidance and will be in touch as soon as we have more details on any new guidelines.
