Remote Work Will Continue For Purdue Employees After Stay-At-Home Order Is Lifted

Purdue University


Purdue University announced Monday employees who are able to work remotely should continue to do so even if Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s stay-at-home order is lifted

Vice President for Human Resources Bill Bell said in a letter that more on-campus research activity could start being permitted; after July 1, campus access could be increased for residential coursework, additional research activities, and employees who work in student support -- but other staff should plan to continue working from home even after July 1.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels announced last week the university intends to re-open in the fall, outlining a series of possible policies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

Purdue previously canceled campus events through June, and in-person classes with start dates in May and June are now being conducted remotely. The school will make a decision about July courses and events by May 15.
