Employee Resources

Consistent with our Healthy Campus Plan, all University employees—full and part-time—are required to declare their vaccination status via the University’s Vaccination Status Submission Form.

Any University employees who do not declare their vaccination status with will be considered non-vaccinated. Non-vaccinated employees will be required to mask indoors while on campus and to test weekly for COVID-19. Please review the below testing requirements for non-vaccinated employees.

Testing Requirements for Non-vaccinated Employees

Non-vaccinated employees are required to test negative for COVID-19 on a weekly basis.

  • Failure to Meet Testing Requirements
    Employees who do not complete their testing requirements in a given week may not return to work in person without a subsequent negative test.
  • Prior Notice for Missed Testing Dates
    Employees unable to complete the testing requirements for a given week should give prior notice by emailing Human Resources at hr@svu.edu.
  • Positive Test Result within 90 Days
    Employees who present proof of a positive COVID-19 test within the past 90 days may be temporarily exempt from routine testing until the end of the 90-day period.

Increased Testing Requirements for Student-Athletes

Non-vaccinated student employees on an athletics team are required to test three times weekly.

Symptomatic Individuals & Reporting

Whether vaccinated or not, employees who experience symptoms related to any communicable illness should not report to work in person. Any symptoms related to COVID-19 should be immediately reported to the COVID Resrouce Center at 540-261-8414 or wellness@svu.edu. Employees who contract COVID-19 or experience any related symptoms, should not return to work before coordinating with Human Resources and their direct supervisor regarding a personalized return-to-work plan.
