The Way We Work

The COVID-19 pandemic forced changes to our workplace. Many employees learned how to perform the functions of their job in a new way during a difficult time, meeting the challenges head-on. Given these experiences, the University of Delaware is embracing approaches that optimize people, time and space by leveraging flexible work arrangements.  Doing so supports a variety of organizational goals including operational excellence, talent recruitment and retention, sustainability and employee wellbeing. Please consult with your supervisor or local HR representative if you have questions or need guidance on issues related to flexible work arrangements.

COVID-19 update: Stay protected

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that individuals get the updated bivalent COVID-19 booster that specifically targets the Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 – the Pfizer BioNTech for those ages 12 and older and Moderna for ages 18 and older. According to the CDC, these updated boosters help “restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination by targeting variants that are more transmissible and immune-evading.”

At this time, the University of Delaware is recommending individuals receive the updated bivalent COVID-19 booster when they are eligible. Officials will continue to review data prior to making any further determinations pertaining to campus requirements.

For now, the University continues to require all students to have a COVID-19 vaccination plus one booster or they must request an exemption. All developments and/or guidance from public health authorities is being monitored closely, and any changes to relevant requirements will be widely announced.

As a reminder, the temporary masking requirements announced for the beginning of the semester expire at the end of the day on Friday, Sept. 9. Until then, masks must be worn in all classrooms, research laboratories and on UD transportation. Instructors and those presenting in classes may remove their masks during active instruction or when presenting if they are more than 6 feet away from others. Masks will continue to be required in all healthcare and clinical spaces after Sept. 9.

All members of the UD community may choose to wear a mask at any time in all campus settings. Masks should be worn by anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, as well as anyone with an exposure to someone with COVID-19.
