Employee Public Health Requirements, Effective July 1
As the vaccination rate of Cornell’s on-campus population increases, many employees will return to work as on-campus operations begin to return to normal in anticipation of a fully in-person fall 2021 semester.
Each college or unit will determine staffing plans for their respective work units, in accordance with university principles for campus repopulation. Employees should review all on-campus guidance and engage with their supervisor prior to resuming in-person work or changing individual work schedules.
