MTU Flex: COVID-19 Training

by University Marketing and Communications

Before Michigan Tech moved to Step Two of our Return to Campus Plan, the University assigned “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Prevention in the Workplace” training to all employees on payroll who did not complete it during Step One. This training is one of three requirements you must complete in order to start working on campus again during Step Two—the other two are obtaining your supervisor’s approval and submitting the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form.

Custodial staff prioritizes public areas and open restrooms when they are in your building. They will not clean or check departmental areas and individual offices.

As more employees return to campus in Step Two of our reopening plan, we need you to do your part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure campus operations continue safely and efficiently.

Here’s what we expect of employees—we appreciate your help:
