April 2 coronavirus update from Rachael Nava
The following message was sent by EVP/COO Rachael Nava on April 2, 2020:
Dear UCOP colleagues:
I’m writing to share with you this letter from President Napolitano and chancellors to the UC community, announcing there will be no COVID-19-related layoffs for career employees through the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2020. We know this is an extremely challenging and stressful time, and we have taken this action to provide staff with some assurance for the next few months during the stay-at-home orders.
Currently, Governor Newsom’s statewide stay-at-home order remains in effect with no defined end date, and many Bay Area counties have extended their stay-at-home orders through May 3. Accordingly, UCOP will remain on telecommute status with limited on-site operations through at least May 3.
Please continue to consult the UCOP.edu website for tips and resources about staying healthy and working effectively from home, and if you have specific needs or questions you may send an email to UCOP-COVID19-Response@ucop.edu.
Thank you for your resilience, partnership, ongoing dedication and good work during these unprecedented and difficult circumstances. I am very proud and grateful to work with such committed and capable colleagues. Please continue to take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer
