COVID-19 Update on March 26 at 7:41 a.m.

From the PIO/Emergency Response Team

Members of the Rollins community:

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings issued an emergency executive order regarding non-essential travel and safety measures, and on businesses deemed essential and non-essential, effective today, Thursday, March 26, at 11 p.m. through Thursday, April 9, at 11 p.m. to help slow the rate of spread of COVID-19.

The Order stipulates that its terms do not limit the operations of any educational institution, public or private. However, in keeping with the public safety intent of the order, we urge all who are able to complete their work from home to do so.

The details of this Order and FAQ can be found on the Orange County website.

What does this mean for Rollins?
Rollins remains an open workplace at this time. If you have been approved to work from home, please continue to do so. If your job requires you to perform your work on campus, please continue to practice social distancing, maintaining at least a 6-foot distance between yourself and others whenever possible. Please keep your R-Card on you as you travel to and from campus over the next two weeks.

What this means for faculty: Faculty may continue to access their offices for research or teaching, and designated classrooms for teaching.

What this means for staff:  Your direct supervisor will tell you how this works for you, and how we can best accommodate needs.

Thank you for your continued patience and attention to this rapidly changing situation.
