Updated May 20, 2020
Bellarmine's campus is currently open to employees identified as essential and a small number of students who have permission to live in residence halls. All other employees are required to continue working remotely. If you are a non-essential employee and need to visit campus, please alert your supervisor.
All employees must fill out this COVID-19 health screening form each day prior to arriving on campus or at your respective work station.
- If you are an employee who has any of the symptoms or risk factors identified on the form you are not allowed campus entry – not even to your own office or classroom - and you must inform your supervisor.
- If you are unable to complete this form remotely, please visit the Office of Public Safety on the ground level of Centro's Treece Hall upon your arrival to campus.
- If you do not have a thermometer, temperature checks are available from Public Safety.
While on campus, you are required to wear a cloth face mask or covering unless you are alone in an enclosed space (e.g., an office) or alone in an area with more than 6 feet of social distancing. If you do not have one, you may obtain one from Public Safety. If you are unable to wear a face covering because of medical concerns, please contact Alice Kimble, Director of Health Services, firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance.
The state requirements also ask us to maintain standards such as social distancing and refraining from congregating in common areas.
Academic and administrative buildings will lock at 6 p.m. and will require swipe-card access. If you need assistance after hours and you have authorization to access a building, please contact Public Safety at 502.272.7777.

Health-sensitive staff deemed essential (anyone age 60 or older and/or those with diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney failure or other chronic major medical conditions) or those caring for health-sensitive relatives should seek guidance from Human Resources.
University-related travel is strongly discouraged during this period and will need to be approved on a case-to-case basis by your vice president.
If you have questions about your work, contact your supervisor. If you have questions about university benefits, contact Human Resources at 502.272.8435. We will provide follow-up communication to answer additional questions that we anticipate you will have.
