Return to Work On Campus

Tarleton is prepared for a phased return to work on campus, starting May 18. The top priority in this gradual reopening is the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and university community. The plan is based on directives from the governor’s office, guidance of public health officials, and support of The Texas A&M University System.

Phase 2: June 1

Return to Work: Phase 2

Target Dates: On or about Monday, June 1, extended through July 12

Goal: Increase staffing levels up to 50% of available staff in a safe manner

  • Covid-19 Alternate Work Location Agreements should be adjusted in accordance with the department’s return to work schedule, to include ending or extending, based on employee requests to their supervisor.
  • High-risk employees and those unable to return to work because their child’s school is closed or child care is unavailable should actively engage in conversations with their supervisor about continuation of remote work arrangements.
  • Meetings or gathering size for those who return to campus should continue to follow requirements established by state health authorities.
  • Employees and guests who need to go to common use areas or attend in-person meetings are highly encouraged to wear disposable or reusable face coverings. The university has provided each employee one reusable face covering with the Tarleton logo.
Phase 3: July 13

Return to Work: Phase 3

Target Dates: On or about Monday, July 13

Goal: Increase staffing levels up to 75-100% of available staff in a safe manner

  • All remaining employees can return to work, again presuming public health conditions do not change and current guidance from state health authorities remains the same.
  • Those approved for covid-19 related remote work assignments will remain off-site until the university receives further guidance from state health authorities. Some employees may be authorized to continue remote work at their manager’s discretion for non-coronavirus related circumstances and will need to submit an updated Alternate Work Location Agreement. More guidance will be provided as it becomes available.
