As the situation evolves, APU needs to continue to modify its response.
Telecommuting-all employees whose work can be accomplished remotely
Today I am writing to encourage all employees who have positions and the technology amendable to telecommuting to take that option until at least March 31st (we will send updates if this date is extended). We already have employees telecommuting either related to previous travel or health conditions, but we are now expanding that option to anyone who can telecommute in order to lower the risk for essential on campus employees and students.
I attached the required request form, technology requirements, and remote desktop/virtual desktop information.
The campus will become much less busy in the next week. To help ensure the health and safety of individuals who may need to continue accessing the buildings, beginning Sunday March 22, 2020, the times that the buildings will be locked or unlocked will be temporarily changed to the following hours:
- Grant Hall – Unlocked Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Carr-Gottstein – Unlocked Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Atwood Center – Unlocked Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Gould Hall – Badge access only from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
- Moseley Sports Center – Limited access
All students and employees have been granted badge access to enter the buildings if they are locked during regular business hours (normally 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.), and if needed, after hours as well. This means that your badges will work to unlock the doors from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The hours above are when the building doors will be unlocked and no badge is necessary. If you have already been granted special permissions or extended access, then those times or accesses will NOT change.
This week, before the building locked/unlocked hours are changed, please check your badges to ensure that they are still active and functional. You can do this by holding your card over the electronic readers at the main front doors of any of the buildings for few seconds until the light finishes flashing. If you see a red light flashing then your badge may be inactive and should be reactivated at the IT front desk. Please make sure to check your badges before the end of the week. When the buildings are locked, to enter using your badge, you have to hold your badge over the reader for a few seconds until the light flashes green.
If you need to change the access that you have been given, please send all change requests to your supervisors first. If your supervisors approve the request, please email the approved form to Stephanie Harrod at firstname.lastname@example.org.
