Take preventative measures to protect yourself, such as those listed on the Harvard University Health Services website here; see also https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html
On Monday, March 23rd, Governor Baker issued an emergency order requiring all businesses and organizations that do not provide essential services to close their physical workplaces and facilities as of Tuesday, March 24th, at noon. At Governor Baker’s direction, the Department of Public Health also has issued a stay-at-home advisory. The order will stay in effect for two weeks until noon on Tuesday, April 7th, though of course it may be extended as circumstances evolve. Only those staff who are designated as critical personnel in the context of this public health crisis should come to work if they are well. Managers will communicate with staff regarding essential personnel designation letters and any long-term service adjustments as needed.

[From Friday, 3/20] all members of our community (faculty, staff, students, postdocs, fellows, researchers, visiting scholars, etc.) except “essential employees” (e.g., animal care, select food service, custodial, and security staff, etc.) should be out of their buildings/offices/labs and working at home, and this mode of operation will continue indefinitely. The FAS is implementing a restricted access plan for offices, classrooms, laboratories, and other research facilities, and will undertake a necessary and important effort to review daily access logs (building swipe data), consistent with steps provided for in Harvard’s Policy on Access to Electronic Information. See Leslie Kirwan's and Claudine Gay's messages here.
To non-teaching members of the university, as classes ramp up next week please be considerate in your use of Zoom; see https://huit.harvard.edu/when-zoom.
