Operational modifications put in place by Auburn University to slow the spread of COVID-19 have been extended through June 30, 2020, the University announced in email on Monday. The modifications include things like the cancelation of all University events and working from home for University employees that are able, the University said.
The original May 9 end date for the modifications was tentative, the University said.
All University events are canceled through June 30.
Current employees of the University will continue to receive payment at their regular rate of pay until May 9, even if they are unable to perform normal job responsibilities, the email said. Beginning May 10, employees who have been approved to work remotely are instructed to do so until the June 30 end date.
Employees unable to handle job duties due to a COVID-19 related issue are told to consult the University's leave guidelines, found here.
