COVID-19 Employee Resources

COVID-19 Employee Resource Page

We are thankful to have a supportive community of students, faculty, and staff who have come together and quickly adapted to working remotely under these challenging and uncertain circumstances.

We have developed workplace guidance to support the Teachers College community as we continue to operate remotely. As you know, those who are not essential or not required for on-campus work will continue to operate remotely through the Winter and Spring 2021 semester.

Visit the TC Preparedness webpage for Health & Safety Guidelines for Campus, Campus Access Requirements, and up to date TC News and Announcements.

Visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Information webpage for guidance on vaccine distribution, eligibility, and useful FAQs.

Please remain vigilant and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. We will get through this together.
