Adams county moves to green tomorrow

Message sent June 11, 2020

Jennifer Lucas, Co-Director of Human Resources, addresses employees on Adams County moving into the green phase and how it affects the workplace.

Dear Colleagues:

The purpose of this email is to provide an update regarding Adams County’s move to the green phase. On June 5, Governor Wolf announced that an additional 12 counties, including Adams County, will move to the green phase beginning Friday, June 12.

Employees who are working remotely should continue to do so until further notice. As in the past, limited personnel are permitted to be on campus. This includes members of Facilities, Dining, and Public Safety. For the time being, other employees requesting to come to campus must first seek approval from their supervisor and Division Head. Please know that supervisors and Division Heads are being asked to prioritize remote working for employees.

I’d like to remind you that if you are on campus, you are required to wear proper personal protective equipment. You must wear face coverings while in the presence of others and in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. If you wish to visit campus and need a mask, please contact Regina Campo. Employees must also disinfect their own work spaces before leaving. Facilities personnel are distributing disinfecting supplies to offices by the end of the week, along with cleaning instructions.

Additionally, employees must continue to conduct symptom monitoring every day before reporting to work. Employees who are sick should remain at home and not report to work. Employees should not return to work until they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medication.

Thank you for your continued good work during these challenging times.
