No. Bringing a child to work is not permitted under a stay-at-home order. The only persons allowed on campus are employees who have been approved by their dean or vice president as being critical to the university’s continued operation. These employees include: first responders, healthcare professionals, supply chain personnel, critical infrastructure support personnel, approved researchers and instructors, and certain contractors. If you are not able to work remotely, the following options are available, although not all options will be available in all situations depending upon the nature of your job responsibilities:

  • Use accrued sick or annual leave, due to the threat of exposure to illness.
  • Make up the work on an hour-for-hour basis during the same workweek for non-exempt (hourly paid)
    employees with supervisory approval. UCF’s workweek begins at 12:00 a.m. on Friday and ends at 11:59 p.m. on
    the following Thursday.
  • Exempt employees may make-up the work on an hour-for-hour basis during the same pay period with
    supervisory approval, or if absent for a full workday, may use accrued leave.
  • Request a Leave of Absence (annual leave usage for pay) or Leave of Absence (without pay) if you will be out
    more than 10 days.
  • Use a combination of the options above.

Please note that on March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was signed into law and became effective on April 1, 2020. University leadership is now working to understand how this new law may apply to UCF employees. More information will be provided when it becomes available, so please check back for details in the coming days.
