Sept. 10, 2021 – Friday COVID Update

EOU Community,

This week’s Friday COVID Update highlights two key reminders regarding the importance of staying home if you are ill or have symptoms and employee requirements to provide their vaccination status. 

Remain at home if you are ill

With the increasing incidence of the Delta COVID variant, it is important to remind all employees that if you are ill for any reason, please do not come to campus. Please remain at home and report to your supervisor immediately. If employees have questions about sick leave, contact Human Resources at hr-group@eou.edu

Employees:  September 15 is your deadline for selecting your vaccination option in Mountie Hub  

With fall term fast approaching it is important to remind all employees that the deadline for employees to provide their vaccine or exemption information is fast approaching. To effectively plan for the fall term, EOU is requiring all employees to complete their vaccination selection by Sept. 15. Employees need to inform the university of their intentions to provide proof of vaccination or request a vaccination exemption. 

How do employees submit proof of vaccination or request a vaccination exemption?

  1. Log into Mountie Hub, and click Employee Services.
  2. Click the “COVID-19 Vaccination Option” tab.
  3. Select one of the five options. Read the instructions. 
  4. As needed, upload proof of vaccination or medical documentation.
  5. Click “Submit” when finished.

Please note that with the full FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine as of Aug. 23, EOU’s vaccination requirement is now in effect. The requirement is that all students and employees who work, learn or engage on EOU’s main campus must show proof of being vaccinated or have an approved vaccination exemption request on file. This requirement does not apply to campus visitors or fully remote students and employees. It does apply to all EOU Head Start locations.
