Employee FAQ

Campus work life has changed at Millersville University and it will continue to evolve as we navigate the pandemic. Please check the FAQs often, as new information becomes available.

  • Faculty - What happens when a student notifies me that they have tested positive for COVID?

    Advise the student that they should contact Health Services at (717) 871-5250 if they have not already done so.  Health Services instructs and educates all students on their responsibilities in identifying and contacting significant exposure concerns. Health Services will then evaluate and test as necessary all students who present to Health Services because of these notifications.

  • Faculty/Staff - What are the recommended guidelines for occupancy in University vehicles?
    University vehicles are available for use. See the recommended guidance for occupant safety below:
    • No reduced occupancy limits when using or renting University vans.
    • Open the windows for more fresh air. 
    • Similar to other public transportation, wearing masks in vehicles is recommended, but not required. The confined space with increased occupancy could spread COVID and other airborne diseases much easier. 
    • The best protection is to get vaccinated if you can. 
    • If you are sick, please do not travel with others. Stay home and get well.

  • Workers Compensation - I believe I contracted COVID-19 at work. Is the illness covered under PA Workers' Compensation laws?

    Yes, but since it is difficult to know if a person who contracts COVID-19 got the virus at work (because the virus is everywhere), it may not be covered by our workers' compensation carrier. No test can determine exactly where and when a person contracts COVID-19.
