Daily Symptom Screening

To comply with this directive, all UNM employees will receive a daily email asking if they plan on coming to campus that day, and if so, if they are experiencing symptoms that can be associated with COVID-19. For more information see On Campus Worksite Protocols

• Face-to-face classes will resume online beginning Monday, March 23.  If any other changes occur, be prepared to follow your instructor's lead.
