Dear Campus Community,
 
As many of you have seen, Governor Steve Bullock has issued a shelter in place / stay at home order for all Montanans as of Saturday, March 28, at midnight, through April 10.
 
From a workforce standpoint, this means that core essential campus functions will continue to remain open for business. There will be no change in the way we have been operating these past few weeks. We have quite a few students living on campus who need to utilize our services and we have facilities and systems that need to be maintained.
 
Essential personnel working on campus and students living in the residence halls, are expected to continue to maintain social distancing and follow the CDC guidelines on proper hand washing and additional protective measures.
 
Tomorrow afternoon, I will provide an email summary of this week's information and updates, along with my first Q&A video. Even though things are changing quickly, I will continue to share new information with you as soon as I can.
 
We are committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff and are doing everything we can to support our campus community’s needs during this difficult time. Health and safety is our number one priority. As a reminder, I sent out an email on March 18 highlighting a new paid COVID-19 leave policy for up to 80 hours for specific situations. If you need and qualify to use it, I encourage you to do so.
 
Be well,
Office of the Chancellor
