ME Sunrise Return to On-Site Work Protocol

Welcome back! We are committed to safely returning faculty, students, and staff to on-site work. Here are the new rules for the ME Sunrise Plan as of June 1, 2021:

  1. Masks and physical distancing are no longer required for those who are fully vaccinated. Anyone who is not fully vaccinated must still wear a mask and maintain a six-foot distance from others at all times. 
  2. Access to research laboratories will still follow the sunrise procedure through July 1st (or until we receive additional notice from the University), with the exception that masks and social distancing for fully vaccinated people are no longer required. Individuals who are being added to lab access lists must still complete the sunrise return to work request

Please note that through August 2, 2021, the University expects that any faculty or staff who can work from home will continue to do so.
