If you have not yet uploaded your vaccination documentation, information on how to do so can be found on the COVID-19 website. The process for uploading documentation has been streamlined to include fewer required fields and to give you more options. If you need assistance with uploading or have other questions about providing vaccination verification, please contact Human Resources at email@example.com or 574-631-5900.
Faculty and staff may apply for an exemption from the vaccination requirement for medical or religious reasons, or other strongly held beliefs. The deadline for filing a request for an exemption has been extended from July 15 to August 2, 2021. Those granted an exemption must participate in weekly surveillance testing and continue to mask indoors while on campus.
For employees who fail to either upload confirmation of vaccination or apply for an exemption by August 2, non-compliance with the vaccination requirement will be considered in annual performance reviews and in setting merit increases. The relevant vice president or dean will be notified of those who are non-compliant, and these employees will be required to participate in weekly surveillance testing and to wear masks indoors.
Have a great week!
