Sent on behalf Matthew Schenk, Executive Director of Human Resources.

In light of today's announcement that all public K-12 schools in Virginia are closed for the next two weeks, remote work may be available under the EVMS Telework/Remote Work Policy depending on the nature of your position. Please discuss any concerns or requests for remote work with your supervisor or Human Resources.

In addition, EVMS has implemented a temporary emergency-leave policy allowing the use of sick leave to cover absences related to these closures, should telework not be an approved option. Please note that emergency leave will still require supervisor approval. As a reminder, residents assigned to non-EVMS facilities must follow the policies and procedures of their hosting facilities.

Detailed information regarding these policies and up-to-date information is available at www.evms.edu/COVID-19.
