Dear staff colleagues,

As previously communicated, the University’s temporary telecommuting guidelines have been extended through April 30, 2020. As a reminder to staff working from home full time or partially, we ask that you please log in to Workday and complete the COVID-19 Telecommute Arrangement for each week that you work from home by noon on Friday, April 17. Properly recording your time will ensure that you receive the appropriate Technology Work From Home stipend to compensate for expenses temporarily incurred while working from home. For assistance, please review the COVID-19 Telecommute Arrangement in Workday Tip Sheet.

Consistent with the CDC recommendation, we urge everyone to wear a cloth face covering, or mask, where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. In addition, the recently issued Miami Dade Order requires persons working in or visiting grocery stores, pharmacies, construction sites, public transit vehicles, vehicles for hire, and locations where social distancing is not possible to wear facial coverings as defined by the CDC. This additional public health measure is in addition to (not instead of) social distancing, frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The use of facemasks is crucial for health workers and those taking care of someone infected with COVID-19 in close settings (at home or in a health care facility). Wearing medical masks on the UHealth campus is required of all employees and visitors. For UHealth personal protection guidelines and information specific to the medical campus, please visit and review the "Process and Procedures" tab.

Get the latest information on the University’s response, as well as links to resources and frequently asked questions at our dedicated website, If you need assistance completing your Workday telecommuting arrangement or have any questions, please reach out to your manager or HR Partner. For any technical issues including Workday, please email

Thank you.
