Today, the City of Norman is issuing a 21-day shelter-in-place order, to begin Thursday, March 26. The University’s current policies for Norman campus employees are fully consistent with this declaration. As a result, no new changes to Norman campus policies are being made at this time. The safety of our employees is our greatest concern, and we will continue to carefully monitor the COVID-19 crisis and modify policies when necessary. As previously directed, employees are asked to communicate with their supervisors to determine appropriate work arrangements. Whenever possible, employees are encouraged to telecommute – unless they fulfill in-person roles necessary to critical university operations. The University has taken extraordinary steps to ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff, and we appreciate the City is taking similar action to ensure the entire Norman community is safe.
