Building/Vehicle Status

This page, which is updated as needed, provides information related to the current status of all temporarily restricted campus buildings and/or vehicles at Slippery Rock University.

Buildings with the status of Screening currently have temperature screening required for all employees and student employees entering the facility until the date specified. The reason for this is that a member of the Slippery Rock University campus community (defined as faculty, staff and students) that has tested positive for COVID-19 previously entered and remained within that building for a period of longer than 15 minutes.

Temperature screening will occur at the designated location prior to employees either entering the building or reporting to their work stations. Any employee exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms will be sent home. Infrared thermometers will be utilized by the designated temperature monitors. Personal thermometers are permitted; however, those temperatures will be required to be taken in view of a designated temperature monitor.

In cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the University will assist with identifying potential contacts. Anyone who had come into close contact- defined as an individual who was within 6 feet of an infectious person for at least 15 minutes or who was directly exposed to respiratory secretions, e.g., cough or sneeze- with the infected persons have been or will be notified and advised on the appropriate response protocol.

Employee Information

Employees, if approved by, and in consultation with their supervisors, should work remotely if their duties allow them to do so. If your supervisor has not notified you about the availability to work remotely, you should report to work as previously scheduled. Supervisors should notify all employees and student employees of any changes within their area. If an employee is sent home at the time of screening, Human Resources will be notified and employees should contact their health care provider.

Student Employee Information

The University reminds everyone of the importance of continuing to practice safe, social distancing, and to wear face coverings at all times when in public. For more information, please refer to the Pennsylvania Department of Health and CDC websites.
