Return to On-Campus Work Playbook


West Virginia University is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. And as the University prepares to resume on-campus operations across the WVU System for the fall 2020 semester, the following plans and guidelines for faculty and staff have been developed. The goal is to reopen our campuses in as safe a manner as possible amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

This playbook aligns with current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines as well as guidance from local, state and federal public health agencies. However, as circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to rapidly evolve, WVU will update its plans and guidelines as additional information becomes available.

Each academic and administrative area has unique circumstances that should be factored into their individualized plans for returning to on-campus work, and these plans should adhere to the policies, procedures and guidelines included in this playbook.

However, plans specific to a department or unit also should consider the number of personnel for their area, the physical work settings needed to accommodate proper physical distancing, the prioritization of work activities and the level of service needed for key constituents.
