Manager Guidance When Considering a Work From Home Arrangement During COVID-19 Related Self Quarantine
A work from home (WFH) arrangement during COVID-19 related self-quarantine may not be suitable in every instance. When considering work from home, managers should review the Manager Checklist for Supporting Work From Home Arrangements and the Manager WFH Assessment. If WFH is approved, the manager must promptly complete/sign the Manager WFH Assessment and return to Shilon Carter-Anderson in the Office of Human Resources. Thank you.
Work From Home Daily Activity Log (revised 5/4/2020)
The State of New Jersey strongly discourages all non-essential interstate travel at this time. Please see the New Jersey travel advisory for additional details.
Travelers and residents returning from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware), or any international destination should self-quarantine as follows:
- You no longer need to quarantine or get tested before/after domestic travel if you are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past three months.
- If you are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID-19 in the past three months, the University strongly recommends that you get tested between the 3rd and 5th day of quarantine. If results are negative, you can end self-quarantine after 7 days after travel, OR
- If testing is not available (or if the results are delayed), you should quarantine for 10 days after travel.
- For International Travel there are specific restrictions and testing/quarantine requirement for international travelers and foreign nationals. Please review the New Jersey Travel Advisory.
Please continue to complete your Daily Health Pledge accordingly.
Employees should speak to their manager and divisional executive about working from home during self-quarantine. If your position does not allow for work from home, the employee should contact the Office of Human Resources to discuss available leave options.
