My doctor told me to stay home and rest while I recuperate from what he believes is the flu. He did not see me, so I don’t know if I can get a note for being away from work (or classes.) Will I be punished for not meeting the requirements of the attendance policy?

Absenteeism procedures may be modified so students, faculty members, and staff who are ill do not return to campus earlier than they should. Rules to require doctor’s notes to excuse absences from class or work may be suspended during a pandemic for certain cases.

Safety and Prevention Tips

Fire Prevention Tip #13

Avoid the use of space heaters. When allowed on campus by facilities, space heaters must be electrical only, with no open flame and must have an automatic shut-off feature when tipped over.
