Please see the communication below that was distributed to all FP&M critical infrastructure workers via email and U.S. mail on April 30, 2020. Please contact your supervisor directly should you have any questions.
Before reporting to campus, you must click the button below and submit the form each day starting 48 hours before arriving to campus.
Dear Valued Colleague,
As you are aware, the governor's executive order (2020-42) requires that those who can work at home must do so, and most university employees are complying with this requirement. But the executive order designates exceptions for those who are necessary to maintaining certain operations, designated as "Critical Infrastructure Worker (CIW)." Your role is vital to helping us maintain the University's operations, so you have been designated as a CIW. As such, your responsibilities cannot be done remotely, and you will be allowed to continue your work on campus.
Since you have been identified as a CIW, as noted in a letter dated March 29, 2020, it is expected that you report to your work assignment and schedule when notified by your supervisor.
Your health and safety remain a priority for us. Please know that we are taking every precaution we can to ensure your safety while on campus. Before reporting to work on campus each day, you are required to complete the daily screening questionnaire in accordance with Public Health Emergency Order #20-02 from the Wayne County Department of Health, Human and Veterans Services division (https://forms.wayne.edu/covid-19-screening). This will require your University access ID and password for login. The questions cover three specific topics:
- Do you have symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, or diarrhea?
- Have you had close contact in the last 14 days with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19?
- Have you travelled via airplane internationally or domestically in the last 14 days?
If you are unable to access the electronic form, and you answer yes to any of these questions, you must contact your immediate supervisor for further instructions. Regardless of whether you are able to access the form electronically, if you are ill or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, please visit your private physician and contact the Campus Health Center at (313) 577-5041 for assistance.
This safety measure, along with others currently being practiced at the university, will help keep you safe and well. To further ensure your safety and the safety of others in the workplace, please still practice social distancing and wear protective equipment while you are on campus.
Please feel free to contact your supervisor or your union representative if you have any questions or require additional assistance. You may also refer to the university HR resource at https://hr.wayne.edu/coronavirus for frequently asked questions and detailed information.
Thank you for your commitment to our employees and for your dedicated service to Wayne State University. We remain Warrior Strong!
