COVID-19 & our campus

Updated  Sunday, March 22, 2020

There have been four presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 on the University’s main campus. These students were previously quarantined per Harnett County Health Department guidelines, but all have fully recovered and been released from quarantine.

Health officials have contacted those who may have been in close contact with the students and need further assessment, self-quarantine or testing. The names of the students will not be released publicly.

There are no additional positive cases of COVID-19 on the Campbell campus at this time.

Faculty & staff updates

Updated Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Work Scheduling

  • If an employee can work from home, then they are encouraged to do so. Department heads will be held responsible for business continuity. 

  • If employees have a position that is isolated, such as a grounds person or a position that must come on campus such as a health center employee, then they should work as needed using social distancing and other CDC precautions. Again, department heads are responsible for business continuity.

  • If an employee cannot work due to personal illness, is under quarantine as a result of an immediate family member’s illness, or other valid reason, pay will continue as normal (as defined by the sick or vacation leave policies in the Campbell University Personnel Manual).

  • Effective March 25, 2020, all non-exempt (hourly) employees who have been approved to work remotely either entirely or partially, must complete and submit a timesheet to their supervisor on a weekly basis.  Employees working both at home and on campus must also complete the timesheet.  Do not use the time clock when working on campus and a timesheet while working remotely, as it will be more difficult for Kronos timekeepers to input time. The timesheet is designed for a two-week period for flexibility, but it must be submitted on a weekly basis in order for Kronos timekeepers to enter hours.
  • If an employee is sick, presenting symptoms, or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive, do not come to work. 

  • Employees should follow proper healthcare guidelines related to COVID-19 and consult with their direct supervisors regarding any illness or absences.

Travel policies and restrictions

  • Effective immediately, all University travel is banned until May 31, 2020.  While few are anticipated, any exception to this ban should be discussed well in advance with your immediate supervisor.
