At the direction of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, The University of Toledo announced Tuesday it will continue remote work arrangements through May 1.
The University had previously implemented working remotely on March 19 with only authorized employees working on campus to support social distancing measures designed to slow the spread of the virus during the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, the University noted plans to reassess staffing by April 3.
“As always, the health and safety of our campus community is our top priority,” UToledo President Sharon L. Gaber said in an email to campus. “These are difficult times for all of us. Thank you for your continued support.”
Employees should connect with their supervisor to determine if continuing their current remote work arrangement is feasible or if an update is needed to cover these additional weeks. This decision is at the supervisor’s discretion and should be coordinated with Human Resources.
The University will continue to work with employees unable to work their full-time hours remotely to use leave balances to cover the time off.
