The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has determined that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 (See CDC website).  While the CDC no longer provides a minimum age for those at risk, the USG will continue to use age 65 as its measure for evaluating requests for alternate work arrangements.  Individuals who are younger than age 65 may provide documentation from a health care provider that their age is a determining factor for risk that should prevent them from working on campus as scheduled. Requests from faculty and staff for an accommodation due to COVID-19 will be handled through the University’s existing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations process. Please contact the HR Liaison for your respective unit or the Office of Faculty & Staff Relations in University Human Resources if you have any questions regarding a COVID-19 workplace accommodation question or request.
