COVID-19 Employee Remote Work Protocol Update


As part of Utah’s recovery efforts, the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) has organized a special USHE COVID-19 Task Force that is actively planning for future operations in a way that protects the safety of students, faculty, and staff.

The task force recognizes that “recovery is not like flipping a switch; it’s more like moving a dial.” The work of this task force will continue to be in step with the governor’s Utah Leads Together 2.0 as they develop a comprehensive plan and timeline. We expect Utah Valley University’s return to normal operating conditions to be a phased approach.

As we await specific guidance from the USHE COVID-19 Task Force, UVU will continue to operate under modified conditions. Thus, employees designated as Category 2, who are currently working remotely, will continue to do so through May 31. Human Resources will update all agreements to align with university direction, and no new agreements will need to be signed.

Thank you for your efforts to help UVU fulfill its mission while adhering to public health recommendations to keep our community healthy. We will continue to inform you of UVU’s plans to reopen facilities and services, and we invite you to access updated information regarding UVU’s response to COVID-19 at

Stay healthy and safe!
