Employee Information During COVID

By August 1, all faculty and staff, including temporary employees, are required to be fully vaccinated. Employees must upload a copy of their vaccination card to WesPortal and report the date on which they are fully vaccinated (if they have not already done so). This information will not be accessible to anyone but the WesPortal administrator and Human Resources staff. To learn more, view a list of frequently asked questions.

We recognize that some faculty and staff may choose not to receive the vaccine for medical or religious reasons. These individuals must complete an Exemption Request Form with Human Resources. Employees whose exemption requests are approved will be required to adhere to safety protocols, which may include testing, wearing masks, and social distancing.

Staff who need to request consideration due to medical conditions, childcare, or other concerns, should complete the Accommodations Request form.  Staff in a high risk category (as defined by the CDC) may wish to request Special Considerations which could include alternate work schedules or special personal protective equipment.
