Refunds for parking at on-campus garages

Initiative: 
Parking and Transit

Will there be any refunds issued for these past few unused months of parking at the on-campus garages? My pass is currently being paid for via paycheck reduction, and I have not used the pass since we started working remotely back in mid-March. Wondering if that's something that can either be refunded or pro-rated for future use?

Process/Notes: 
Point of reference 6/29/2020 Michael Crow employee webinar.
Resolution/Notes: 

As of June 30, 2020, the university is not offering these options. Employees are encouraged to explore whether to continue with their current parking arrangements or to make changes.

Parking options can be explored at https://cfo.asu.edu/parking. For questions about making changes to current parking arrangements please contact parking@asu.edu.

University policy on reopening procedures

Initiative: 
Health and Safety

I'm curious as to why there's not a university policy on reopening procedures. It seems weird to me that each department sets its own guidelines including phased schedules. For example, my department will start with everyone going in 1 day/week, while another department is doing rotations where each person spends 1 week in the office, 2 weeks at home. It seems like we'd have a better impact on public health as a whole if we had a universal approach to reopening as a university. Thank you.

Resolution/Notes: 

The complexity and diversity of the university make it difficult to create a one size fits all approach. For this reason the executive committee delegated the specific return plans to the vps and deans. Information on the University’s plan to reopen is located at the following address: https://eoss.asu.edu/health/announcements/coronavirus. There is a link to FAQ’s and an option to select live chat if your questions are not covered in the website information. If you have not already taken the ASU Community of Care training. You may locate this training on the career edge platform. This is updated frequently and may answer your questions.

Restroom usage and COVID-19

Initiative: 
Health and Safety

What's the plan with restrooms usage understanding that commercial toilets seats have tested positive for covid as a result of flush-splash back/spray.  Will cleaning supplies be provided for before and after use?  What is the overall plan for water fountains, microwaves, refrigerators, ice machines, vending machines, door handles, hand rails, or even the crosswalk buttons?

Safety guidelines with COVID-19 reopening

Initiative: 
Health and Safety

I'm very concerned. We're being asked to rely on our common sense to follow safety guidelines with COVID-19 reopening. Meanwhile, I have a coworker who is traveling to NY for 10 days, ignoring the 14 day quarantine for individuals coming from our state, and visiting elderly relatives. If our own colleagues aren't following safety guidelines, how can we expect students and the general ASU community to follow them? Please, any advice is super appreciated!

Parking Permits While Working from Home

Initiative: 
Parking and Transit

I am teleworking due to COVID-19 restrictions and asking Parking if I could cancel or deactivate my parking permit. The answer was no, that it was too late in the permit year, but the permit year ends on July 31st. I had wanted to cancel my permit anyways (I pay through payroll deduction), as I am working out alternate transportation. However, this seems unfair that employees who are now teleworking will have to pay for parking that they are not using, potentially for over 4 months.

Process/Notes: 
Sent to Parking and Transit
Resolution/Notes: 

We have received daily inquiries regarding stopping payroll deduction for employees as well as refunding student permits.

This is currently being evaluated by many along with many other services throughout the university.  I expect there will be some final determination on this soon. Until then, all inquiries are directed to watch for updates posted to the university FAQ webpage: https://eoss.asu.edu/health/announcements/coronavirus/faqs

Donating PPE to Local Hospitals

Initiative: 
Health and Safety

Is ASU donating any of its PPE – personal protection equipment (e.g. gloves) to local hospitals? For the rest of the semester there are going to be no in-person labs, so ASU should consider helping out hospitals who are in desperate need of these materials.

Process/Notes: 
Sent to Administration
Resolution/Notes: 

Answered by Jamon Hill, Exec. Dir. Supply Chain/Deputy CPO, UBS PUR Management

We are not donating any PPE as we are helping support student health services and research related to COVID-19. We have been collecting PPE from across ASU in order to support these efforts. We are, however, working with area hospitals jointly to consolidate efforts to acquire and even manufacture PPE for all of us.
