An Update from Chancellor Lesa Roe on COVID-19 - March 16, 2020

Monday, March 16, 2020 - 8am

With additional COVID-19 cases reported in North Texas over the weekend, we are taking additional measures to protect our employees while maintaining core operation of our system and member institutions.

We are making preparations to further reduce the number of people working on our campuses and office sites. Your supervisor will be communicating with you today regarding plans for your position. If you, or an immediate member of your family that lives in your house, are high-risk to COVID-19, per CDC guidelines, please communicate with your supervisor to make arrangements to allow for social distancing at work or telecommuting.

We are continuing to update our UNT System COVID-19 web site https://www.untsystem.edu/covid-19 and have added additional human resources guidance and remote working information. Please visit the site for frequent updates and feel free to email HR@untsystem.edu if you have specific questions that aren’t addressed on the site.

Thank you for your understanding, your compassion for others, and your willingness to navigate these many disruptions to protect the health and safety of UNT World.

Lesa B. Roe
Chancellor
