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.
