Dear RVU Family,
We did it! Thanks to the commitment of our employees and students to keep our community safe, we have reached our goal to move forward to Phase Green! To date 90% of our students in CO and 89% in UT have provided proof of vaccination. On the employee side, 91% are compliant in CO and 89% in Utah. If you have not yet uploaded your proof of vaccination, please do so as soon as possible so these numbers can be pushed even higher. If you need an accommodation or exemption and haven’t already submitted the appropriate paperwork, please do so immediately.
Effective July 1, we will be transitioning to Phase Green! What this means is that as of next Thursday, all employees and students who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to complete the attestation form, wear a mask while on campus or practice social distancing.
While we are excited about welcoming our community back to campus, we also recognize that all employees don’t necessarily need to be back on campus full time by July 1 unless in essential roles or needed as determined by their supervisor. Respecting the institution's goals, values, and hopes, supervisors should work compassionately in a welcoming way with employees phasing back to campus balancing a “hybrid” model of working on campus and/or home, guided by our student-centered model.
We are sure that there will be a lot of questions as we find our way back to normal. An employee-focused Town Hall is scheduled for Wednesday, June 30th at 3:00 PM to provide additional guidance, information and respond to questions.
Thank you again for helping us reach this critical milestone. We hope you have a wonderful and enjoyable weekend.
Covid-19 Response Team
