Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.

spring 2021 covid testing

Due to the Stay Home executive order issued by Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, Norwich University employees are required to remain at home unless they have been designated in writing by Human Resources as an “essential employee” and have been asked to work on campus by their supervisor.

Some employees are able to perform their regular work duties remotely from home and receive their normal pay. However, some employees must use PAID ADMIN LEAVE because:

  1. They are unable to perform their work from home
  2. They are caring for children who are at home due to school or day care closure
  3. They are experiencing illness, quarantine, or self-isolation due to the COVID-19 virus
  4. They or a member of their household are immunosuppressed

Based upon recent guidance from Vermont Department of Health officials, President Schneider has added another reason.

Effectively immediately, Norwich University is mandating that employees who have anyone living in their household who is at high-risk for exposure to the COVID-19 virus (doctor, nurse, caregiver, etc.) must remain off campus until further notice. The employee may work remotely or use Paid Admin Leave if they are unable to work from home. If you have any questions pertaining to remote work, Paid Admin Leave, or staying off campus, please contact Human Resources at (802) 485-2075 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Norwich University admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
