The prohibition is in effect for three weeks, per County Health orders. Access will not be allowed to faculty, staff, or students except those providing essential services (certain Facilities, Public Safety, and ITS staff).

Those employees, including student workers, who are not able to work remotely will continue to be paid as scheduled through March 31. Additional information relating to pay and leaves will be forthcoming in a future communication.
Staff and faculty may still access campuses on Tuesday, March 17 to check out loaner laptops for working from home.
