Please visit the Doing Your Part page to review our campus-wide expectations and guidelines for the semester.

Illness or Quarantine 

All Bradley employees are required to complete this self-report form if you test positive for COVID-19 or if you are required to quarantine due to suspected or known exposure to COVID-19. After submitting the form:

  • Bradley Health Services will contact you within 24 hours to discuss your situation and provide instruction about returning to work/campus.
  • Inform your supervisor how long you are expected to be absent from work, following the guidance from Health Services.
  • Please do not report to work or visit campus until you are cleared to do so by Bradley Health Services. Stay home to self-isolate and follow the CDC-recommended steps for care.
  • Your local health department will reach out to initiate community contact tracing.  Bradley Health Services will conduct campus contact tracing.

Visit our Health and Wellbeing page for more information.

The Family and Medical Leave Act may apply if you contract COVID-19. Time off to care for yourself, your child or your parent who has COVID-19 will not require FMLA certification from a health care provider.

Mental Health Benefits

We know this time is stressful for everyone, so we want to remind you Bradley provides resources to help full-time employees and eligible dependents cope with life events through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP offers confidential, short-term counseling at no cost.

  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP) - (888) 293-6948/TDD: (800) 327-1833, twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week or workhealthlife.com/Standard3
  • If you’re enrolled in a Bradley-sponsored health plan, you can schedule a time to speak with a counselor in the privacy of your home through the Virtual Visit option.
  • Take breaks from watching, reading or listening to news stories, including social media, if they make you feel overwhelmed or distressed.
  • Healthy eating, exercising, getting sleep and finding time to unwind are beneficial during these stressful times.
  • Be sure to talk with people you trust about your concerns and feelings.
  • The CDC also has several resources you may find helpful.
  • For more self-care tips, visit our Coping and Resilience page.

Noncompliance

Anyone who consistently disregards Bradley's safety requirements (distancing, masks, testing and contact tracing, etc.) may be subject to disciplinary action. If you observe someone who doesn’t adhere to physical distancing and face covering guidelines on campus:

  • Talk to the person yourself if you feel comfortable, or share your concern with your supervisor or Human Resources.
  • If you witness someone consistently disregarding Bradley’s safety guidelines, report it to COVID19concerns@bradley.edu or complete the noncompliance form online. For an immediate response, contact (309) 677-2000.
