Why did this Telework Agreement form go out now while cases are on the rise? Does it mean UMB is going to shift to "Low Density Operations" soon?

December 16, 2020

Any connection between the number of COVID-19 cases and the timing of this document is coincidental. UMB is operating in a status of Moderate Density Operations. The University president will continue to base UMB's operational status on the current COVID-19 pandemic circumstances, guidance from the state of Maryland, and recommendations of appropriate public health experts.
