Cleanliness Steps

UD has a Flexible Work Policy. This information is based on current conditions. The Administration and COVID Implementation Team (CVIT) are monitoring conditions in the local community closely and will make adjustments and update if necessary.

Flexible Work Policy
Starting August 3, 2020 through May 31, 2021. Supervisors will work with their staff to ensure continued excellent service while supporting their employees and minimizing risk to our UD Community. Read full text -- Flexible Work Policy

Employees are asked to do their part by monitoring for any symptoms of COVID-19, taking their temperature frequently, and not coming to campus if they are sick or have a temperature over 100 degrees.

Personal Safety Protocols
When working on campus, please adhere to the personal safety protocols (masks, washing/sanitizing, social distancing, etc.) outlined here.

Masks are required at all times in University buildings, except while working in your own office or cubicle. Masks are also required outside if you are closer than 6 feet from another person.

Feeling Sick?
Employees are expected to call in sick if they are experiencing COVID-19-related symptoms at home, or to leave work after notifying their supervisor if they start to feel ill at work.  All full and part-time faculty and staff should report any COVID-19-related symptoms on the Employee Reporting form found in the Employee COVID-19 procedure. You will be contacted by someone in the Office of Human Resources upon submission of the Employee Reporting Form. Employees with COVID-19-related symptoms should seek covid testing through their own doctor or off-site testing center (not the UD Health Clinic).

COVID-19 Testing for Employees

The CDC recommends you call and follow directions of your healthcare professional if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19. If they recommend a test, this spreadsheet lists some available COVID-19 testing sites in Irving. All of the sites listed are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS).  The MD Family Clinic verified that the Rapid Test is in-network also. This is as of 9/1/2020, but may be subject to change.  

Employees can also go to and enter their zipcode to find a testing site near them. For each testing site, there's a website and the employee can call and verify their medical plan is in-network. BCBS members can also call the Nurse Line (800) 581-0368 to help them figure out if their symptoms are COVID-related and can call BCBSTX Customer Service to find a testing site in-network (800) 521-2227.
