COVID-19 Remote Work Policy

This post was updated on

As of December 4, 2020, Human Resources has issued a COVID-19 Remote Work Policy. All employees – faculty, staff and students – are included in this policy.

Chapman University regularly consults with state and local health officials in determining its policies on COVID-19 remote work.  Consistent with that guidance, Chapman University has adopted current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines concerning increased COVID-19 medical risk factors in determining eligibility for remote work relief.

CDC guidelines are updated regularly as the medical community’s understanding of the disease’s epidemiology evolves. This policy purposefully employs hyperlinks to CDC guidelines in order to incorporate the most recent guidance into this policy.  This practice is consistent with the CDC’s Summary of Recent Changes published November 2, 2020, and is incorporated into this policy by express reference.

As necessary, this policy will be revised and updated. Please refer to the document itself for the most current information.
