Common Questions from the Webster Community

This FAQ will be updated as new developments and guidance warrant. 

Updated: June 25. The following questions currently relate primarily to employees' phased process for returning to on-campus operations.

When can staff (non-supervisors) begin to return to campus?

Non-supervisory personnel may begin to return the week of June 29, 2020, as local and/or military guidelines allow. Their supervisor shall have finished required preparation for the return of the employee(s) and the employee must complete and submit the Attestation for the Transition and Adaptability Policy document to their supervisor.

Where do I return to the completed Attestation for the Transition and Adaptability Policy?

Please return the signed document to your supervisor. Supervisors should collect and return the documents via the following e-mail humanresources@webster.edu.

What else must I do when reporting to work on campus?

Employees must conduct symptom monitoring every day before reporting to work and complete the Daily Health-Screening Form as referenced in the Return-to-Campus Safety Directives. This self-screening is required to enter campus buildings.

What do I do with the e-mail confirmation I receive when completing the daily health screen form?

Verification of completed health screening form will be sent to the individual through their Webster University email address noting an approval or a denial to enter campus buildings.

If approved to come to campus: Supervisors will have responsibility to review an employee’s verification to be on campus for each day. The email should be kept easily accessible to produce when necessary. Employees are able to travel between campus buildings. However, they must first report to their supervisor(s) to report access screening results before reporting to other areas of campus.

If you are directed NOT to report to campus based on your screening: Follow the directions listed in the email received to provide notification to Human Resources/Supervisor(s).

DO NOT report to campus if you are feeling ill.
