Faculty and Staff 
COVID-19 Information and Resources

The safety and well-being of our faculty and staff at each location (PCOM, PCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia) is a top priority. Faculty and staff are advised to check your PCOM email account, this page and my.pcom.edu for the most up-to-date information.

When should employees report to work?

All full-time employees will be required to work on campus a minimum of three (3) days per week, effective September 7, 2021. This means that all telework agreements will expire on September 6, 2021. For those that would like to continue remote work, please fill out and the telework form to your supervisor/manager and human resources (humanresources@pcom.edu) for approval before Monday, August 16, 2021.

Although the return to campus is exciting news, we understand how the return to the in-person workplace may pose some challenges for members of our community. To make this transition as seamless as possible for everyone, we will be providing a variety of materials, resources, and information to guide you through this process.

COVID-19 vaccinations

Effective Wednesday, Sept. 15, PCOM will require all employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Employees may seek an exemption from this requirement for medical or religious reasons by applying to disabilityservices@pcom.edu. Employees may also state their intent to decline to be vaccinated by sending an email to Human Resources at humanresources@pcom.edu. All unvaccinated employees must complete COVID-19 safety education modules and will be required to undergo continual COVID-19 testing, wear masks, and socially distance when on campus, whether indoors or outdoors.

At this time, employees will continue to record their vaccination status using CampusClear. The uploading of proof of vaccination for verification purposes may be required at a future time, so it is important to keep proof of vaccination in a secure place and to keep a copy as well. This policy applies to all faculty, staff, full-time, part-time and temporary employees, regardless of work location. Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to humanresources@pcom.edu.
