UF strongly encourages people ages 65 or older, those whom the CDC categorizes as being at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 because of an underlying health condition, or those who are pregnant to discuss with their supervisors the ability to work at alternative work locations (i.e., work at home), assuming that this is compatible with their work-related responsibilities. For those for whom this is not an approved option, including those with essential functions that require onsite scheduling, or for those who wish to return to campus, UF will provide KN95 masks to maximize protection.

While a voluntary and self-identified process, UF Human Resources can assist navigating the review and approval process of these alternative work location requests.
