COVID-19 Update

March 24, 2020

The campus will transition to only essential operations and we will move all other campus offices to virtual service today, March 24, at 5 p.m.

UNT employees who do not fall into the essential personnel category for being on campus and are unable to do their work from home – as determined by your vice president and supervisor – will be reassigned to other duties or receive emergency leave. Please visit this UNT System website to learn more about COVID-19-related emergency leave.


Employees (non-exempt and exempt) who are working in direct response to the current health situation, as directed and approved by your supervisor, and/or employees who are performing emergency response work (e.g. essential personnel) in direct response to the current health situation, must record the time worked on the response differently. Please review important timekeeping information procedures whether you are working direct response or not.


Reminder: UNT World Town Hall hosted by Chancellor Lesa Roe begins at 2 p.m. today. The all-virtual town hall will feature a moderated Q&A with Chancellor Roe and include UNT President Neal Smatresk, UNT Dallas President Bob Mong, UNT Health Science Center President Michael Williams, and Vice Chancellor & Chief Human Capital Officer Barbara Abercrombie.

Faculty and staff can watch live. The video will be archived at the same URL.


University Mail Services will continue to operate during the current Covid-19 crisis and will be open in the University Services Building (Room 128) 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily Monday through Friday.

Mail will be delivered in the morning daily to those departments remaining on campus.

Departments that are closing may request that their mail be held until the crisis is resolved. At that time, it will be delivered as normal. Departments may also designate someone to pick up their mail at Mail Services. Please call 940-565-2286 or email mail.services@unt.edu to schedule time for pickup and Mail personnel will bring it to your car.


Don’t forget that healthalerts.unt.edu is updated frequently with new information about how we are working together through this global health crisis.
