Announcement: Special Meeting 08/12/21
Administrative Mandate on Campus COVID Protocols for Fall 2021

Effective: August 13, 2021

Vaccination Requirement
All NMHU faculty, staff, administrators, and students who will be on Highlands’ campus or property, including the NMHU centers, must provide proof of full vaccination no later than August 20, 2021.

Exemptions for vaccination may be permitted for those who cannot receive the vaccination for qualifying disability/medical conditions or religious convictions. The process for requesting an exemption will be provided soon.

The process NMHU will use to verify vaccinations will be provided to all faculty, staff, administrators, and students on or before August 18. After August 20, unvaccinated faculty, staff, administrators, and students must submit an updated COVID test every two weeks to the university with the test having been conducted in the past seven days. Exempted individuals will still need to provide evidence every two weeks that they have tested negative for COVID-19. Any expense as a result of the COVID-19 testing required under this exemption will be the responsibility of the employee or student seeking the exemption; the state of New Mexico has contracted with a test provider that currently will provide tests free of charge and this service may be used.

Mask Guidelines
Effective immediately, NMHU requires that all individuals on campus or at one of the NMHU centers, including vaccinated individuals, wear a mask indoors unless eating, engaged in physical exercise, working alone in an office, or otherwise alone in a private space. Student athletes shall follow all NCAA and RMAC requirements.

This masking mandate is effective immediately.

Social Distancing in The Classroom and On Campus
NMHU is committed to offering a variety of face-to-face classes in the fall semester in a safe fashion. In addition to the new masking requirement, NMHU encourages all faculty and students to practice physical distancing. To promote social distancing, NMHU will be examining any classes with greater than 50% enrollment of their cap and may be spacing out or blocking off the seating in those rooms or moving those classes to a larger room.

On all campus and center spaces, faculty, staff, administrators, and students are encouraged to practice appropriate social distancing.

Daily Symptoms Screening
Effective August 16, 2021, all faculty, staff, administrators, and students will be required to complete a daily symptoms screening if they are planning to come to campus or other NMHU facilities. The screening will be delivered through e-mail and the NMHU portal.

If you are not cleared to come to campus through the screening, do not come to campus. For employees who do not pass the screening, contact your supervisor. For students living on campus, please remain in your room and contact the Emergency Operations Center at EOC@nmhu.edu.

To protect the campus community, any faculty, staff, administrator, or student experiencing symptoms should stay at home and, if appropriate, be tested for COVID.

COVID Reporting Requirements
Any faculty, staff, student, or administrator who tests positive for COVID-19 must immediately inform the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at eoc@nmhu.edu. NMHU follows all CDC, New Mexico Department of Health, and OSHA protocols for positive cases.

Centers
The landlords of the NMHU centers may impose additional COVID restrictions, which will be implemented and communicated to center students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

Initiating Reasonable Working Accommodations for Health-related Matters
The position of the university is a safe return to campus for the fall semester. Faculty and staff wishing to request reasonable accommodations for COVID health or safety-related reasons have the following options through Human Resources (HR). Any dean or supervisor receiving such a request must refer the staff or faculty member to HR.

1. Conduct business from the campus of record while adhering to the new NMHU COVID policies.

2. Apply for Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA):  FMLA protects an employee’s job for medical reasons as specified by a certified health care provider and may be used either continuous or intermittently based on one’s situation as applicable for up to 480 hours per year.

3. Enter into a dialogue with HR on the reasonable accommodation process to understand the conditions, concerns, and background surrounding the request.  NMHU may require medical documentation or correspondence from your health care provider regarding the health factors put forward to grant the accommodation.  HR will evaluate and examine the options available based on the interactive dialogue with you and your dean or supervisor to determine if an accommodation is possible and does not place undue hardship on the university in the process.  The ADA Reasonable Accommodation process is not a one-stop process as it involves discussion, documentation, and a collaborative approach to address the request. A combination of FMLA and a reasonable accommodation is permitted, if applicable.

COVID Training
All new students, faculty, staff, administrators, and contractors should take the Covid-19 trainings offered through Brightspace for the upcoming fall semester.
