For Faculty and Staff

  • Faculty and staff who are sick should stay home and address COVID-19 with their medical provider and supervisor as they would other illnesses that require the use of sick days.
  • All instructors are asked to review the syllabus statements and follow the instructions for including the statements provided on course syllabi.
  • Information about how units can implement various workplace strategies—including remote work—can be found on the HR website.

The health and safety of our community continues to be paramount, and we encourage all University community members to take precautions against COVID-19 and other illnesses.

With the overwhelming majority of the campus community currently vaccinated, Northwestern strongly encourages all who qualify for vaccinations and boosters to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.
