Protect Yourself & Your Community
Physical Distancing & Working From Home
The most effective means of preventing transmission of COVID-19 is to minimize in-person interactions by working from home. When not possible, employees must strive to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between individuals.
Employees, students and DCCs are all required to complete the Wildcat Wellcheck every day they plan to be onsite at any UArizona location.
Employees, students, and visitors must use face coverings in all UArizona locations.
Personal Hygiene & Hand Washing
Employees should proactively disinfect personal workstations in addition to shared areas or items.
Cleaning & Disinfection
Supervisors must ensure that spaces are being cleaned regularly and that there are adequate supplies for cleaning and disinfection.
