COVID-19 Related ADA Accommodations Requests

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has determined that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk from COVID-19. Requests from faculty and staff for an accommodation due to COVID-19 will be handled through the University’s existing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations process. Please contact the Department of Human Resources if you have any questions regarding a COVID-19 workplace accommodation question or request; you may also visit the WVSU ADA Employee Accommodations website for more information.

More information about this process can be found here.

Faculty and staff seeking an accommodation are asked to submit their COVID-19 related ADA accommodation request as soon as possible and before the start of the fall 2020 semester. This will assist the campus in planning for the delivery of instruction this fall semester. Keep in mind that faculty and staff may submit an accommodation request at any time as the need arises or circumstances change.

Please note the University’s accommodations process addresses workplace accommodations directly related to the employee (one’s self) and their job functions. The University’s accommodation process can only be used to address COVID-19 related concerns related to your own medical conditions and risk factors. If you wish to seek leave related to the care of others, please refer to employee leave options below including the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
