The Department of Residential Facilities is committed to ensuring the safety and health of all of our staff members as the University of Maryland responds to the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to ensure that all of our staff have access to university resources and the most up-to-date information. These resources will keep staff up to date on the latest developments and guidance from the Department, the University and the State of Maryland.

1. All individuals on campus are expected to follow four core guidelines:
- If you are sick, do not report to work. Employees and graduate assistants will monitor and report health symptoms daily. I have provided more information about self-screening your daily health below
- Wear a face covering at all times indoors and outdoors when other people are nearby. Individuals may choose to wear their own face coverings. Disposable non-surgical face masks are available immediately to departments through the Procurement Department (details will be provided to department heads).
- Stay at least 6 feet apart from others at all times.
- Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Before reporting to campus for work each day, employees are expected to review a list of COVID-19 symptoms, including feeling feverish or having a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
- For those with access to a computer, this is to be done by completing the COVID-19 Employee Screening Checklist for symptom monitoring before coming to work each day.
- For those without computer access, complete your symptom check at home and report to work only if you do not have symptoms.
- If you experience any of the symptoms listed on the screening checklist, you should notify your supervisor and do not report to campus. Seek advice from your health care provider or, if you do not have a health care provider, contact the University Health Center nurse line at (301)405-4325.
- If you suspect that you have COVID-19 or have been told by a health care provider that you may have COVID-19, you should notify the University Health Center nurse line at (301) 405-4325.
