Non-essential employees to continue working remotely until May 28

Published May 15, 2020


To all employees from Mark Coldren, Associate Vice President, Human Resources

This message is to communicate to the UB community that the governor’s directive advising all non-essential employees to stay at home and work remotely will continue through May 28. The extension, announced this morning, comes as five regions of upstate New York can begin reopening because they have met criteria laid out by the governor's office.

When there is a change in the governor’s directive, UB will provide a planned and phased approach for any changes in operations, services and the return of non-essential employees to the campus. Until then, non-essential employees must continue to work remotely. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Again, I would like to express the gratitude of the entire UB community to all of our essential colleagues who continue to work on campus each day to maintain the operations of the university.
