Employee Guidelines

Working During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Guidelines for all UNLV Employees

In responding to the re-entry consequent to the COVID-19 interruption, UNLV is committed to protecting public health, including the health of our students, faculty, staff, vendors, contractors, and visitors. The COVID-19 Response Policy requires that appropriate guidelines be followed as we return to on-campus operations and activities. These guidelines are subject to change as needed to be consistent with directives from the Governor, NSHE Chancellor, and UNLV President.

Employee Vaccine Mandate

The NSHE Board of Regents approved an emergency policy on September 30, 2021 that requires all NSHE employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by December 1, 2021 as a condition of employment.  See the COVID-19 vaccine employee mandate webpage for more information.

Face Coverings and COVID-19

  • Effective July 30, all NSHE students, employees, and members of the public are required to wear a face covering as recommended by the CDC while inside any building or structure on any NSHE campus or property.
    • Face coverings must cover both the mouth and nose.
  • Employees alone in non-public locations, such as private offices, are not required to wear a face covering.
  • Individuals may request a health-related accommodation by contacting the Disability Resources Center (students) or Equal Employment and Title IX (employees). Individuals may contact Gregg Maye (gregg.maye@unlv.edu or 702-895-4849), the campus COVID-19 Ombudsman, to discuss concerns or potential exceptions.

The CDC provides guidance on how to properly wear a cloth face covering.
