COVID-19 HR Policies, Flu Clinics and Mammoths on Campus

Reminder: COVID-19-Related Human Resources Policies and Information

In order to provide guidance regarding leave time available to staff during a COVID-19-related period of quarantine and/or isolation, the College has established a new policy. Visit the Quarantine and Isolation Leave Policy webpage for details. In addition, the College has created an Emergency Leave Bank that will allow staff to contribute leave time and to request use of donated leave time to address severe hardship as a result of the pandemic. More details are available on the COVID-19 Emergency Leave Bank Policy webpage

Flu Clinics and Flu Shots

The College is once again providing flu shots to all staff and faculty working on campus, and separately to staff and faculty working remotely. The College is also administering the vaccine to all students on campus, as mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and required by the College, per the Statement of Shared Responsibility that students agreed to before returning to campus. Contact the OHR at hr@amherst.edu with any questions.

Mammoth Sightings on Campus

We’ve been impressed by how well the members of our campus community have been following the College’s rules regarding face coverings and COVID-19 tests, among other things. But we thought it wouldn’t hurt to remind everyone of what works, in a Mammoth kind of way. Thanks for doing your part to keep our herd healthy!
