Yes, because it is difficult to predict when and how DMACC will be impacted, we can expect plans to evolve. Currently, DMACC is in the Online/Remote/Essential Services phase. This means that only those employees designated and approved to provide essential services will report to the worksite. Others have been approved to work at home. If not designated as essential or approved to work at home, employees will take leave. Human Resources staff are working with employees to determine the type of leave they will use if they are not able to work remotely.
The campus is closed until at least May 18th. On May 18th, we plan to move to the Online/Remote/Essential Plus phase which would allow return for “Essential Plus” personnel. Essential Plus includes those defined as essential and a few others approved by the President or VPAA to assist students in finishing up spring face to face work and, some involved with maintenance and/or custodial work. Your supervisor will communicate with you regarding your specific date for returning to onsite work.
Information continues to change about when the virus is expected to peak. That information will be reviewed to determine when it would be advisable and safe to have employees back on campus. When that decision is made, it may be that employees will return in a phased approach and not all at one time. The next phase for employees is Online/Remote/Limited Services
