Community Information Regarding Coronavirus

Update June 29, 2020 - Special Message from Dr. Darrell Haydon, CFO - Update on Phase 1

Dear UIW Community,

The Business Continuity Planning Team has continued to monitor the COVID-19 situation and based on the current surge in cases in San Antonio, has recommended to University Leadership to remain in Phase 1. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for the UIW community and aligned with UIW’s Continuity of Operations Plan. Click here to view the Continuity of Operations Phased Plan. This plan identifies the phases, aligned to CDC recommendations, that will guide our business continuity efforts to reopen our campuses to students and employees.

As a reminder, the phases are as follows:

  • Pandemic Phase – Active disease transmission
  • Phase 1 – Stay home and work safe to mitigate risk
  • Phase 2 – Staged reopening by risk assessment and containment
  • Phase 3 – “New normal,” easing restrictions under improved conditions

At this time UIW remains in Phase 1 of the plan which is to stay home and work safe to mitigate risks. While we had hoped to bring a small group of student-athletes back to campus in early July, this has been delayed and will be reassessed in the coming weeks by the Business Continuity Planning Team. Phase 2 will require a downward trajectory of positive tests within a 14-day period of time, no evidence of rebound, a robust testing program, and local hospital preparedness.

Please note, as the University transitions through the Phases, employees should only return as needed and as directed by their supervisors. Employees should not return to work without supervisor permission. All employees need to complete COVID-19 safety training, and all supervising managers need to review the Supervisor’s Guide. When the time comes to return to work, all employees should review the UIW Return to Work Guidelines.

For the latest news and information related to the institutional wide response, please visit the University of Incarnate Word COVID-19 website, regularly. All questions should be submitted through the UIW COVID-19 Question Form.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through this uncertain time.

Sincerely,

Dr. Darrell L. Haydon
Chief Financial Officer/Vice President for Administrative Services
