Rythee Lambert-Jones, interim assistant vice president for University Human Resources (UHR) sent the following email to faculty and and staff today:
Protecting the health and safety of the campus community during the continuing pandemic remains a priority. As COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available, all university employees are encouraged to get vaccinated when they are eligible to help control the spread of the virus.
To assist you and provide a greater opportunity for vaccination, UHR is pleased to announce that you may use up to two hours of administrative leave to get vaccinated, as of March 1. This administrative leave is available for use as follows:
As our University Health Center director has emphasized, after getting vaccinated, please continue following the 4 Maryland healthy behaviors—wear your mask, keep your distance from others, wash your hands, stay home if you feel ill and get tested every two weeks if you come to campus.
Interim Assistant Vice President,
University Human Resources
