UHart's Public Safety would like to provide the following information regarding procedural adjustments based on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Procedural Adjustments Made for COVID-19
In accordance with protocols and recommendations currently in place by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as State and local health departments, Public Safety will be making the following modifications to limit exposure and the spread of COVID-19 within our community:
- In order to gain approval for access to campus buildings all faculty and staff will be required to submit an Employee Building Access Form to Public Safety. These visits will require our staff to assist with access and cleaning, taking away from already reduced resources in our Public Safety and Facilities operations. Please be considerate of this in making your requests.
- Public Safety will make every effort to abide by the CDC recommendations of social distancing to curb the spread of the virus.
- Students should call Health Services at 860.768.6601 if they develop symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Students should call to be triaged over the phone and/or to make an appointment.
- Public Safety will continue to respond appropriately to any emergency calls for service.
Public Safety would like to thank the UHart community for your cooperation and understanding during this ever-changing and challenging time.
