The COVID-19/Coronavirus situation can raise specific concerns for faculty, staff and students with compromised or suppressed immune systems due to a disability. Campus members with diagnosed conditions are welcome to contact our offices if the need arises, for a discussion of possible accommodations to access UMBC's classes, programs, services, and work. Health conditions that qualify as a disability may include cancer, HIV infection, receiving an organ transplant and more.
Undergraduate and graduate students who are immunocompromised in this manner may request new or supplemental academic accommodation by contacting Student Disability Services (link) via phone 410-455-2459, email disAbility@umbc.edu or through their Accommodate account.
Similarly immunocompromised UMBC employees - faculty, staff, and students - who wish to discuss work accommodation options shall contact Accessibility & Disability Services via phone 410-455-5745 or email email@example.com if the need arises.
Follow UMBC's COVID-19 website for updates.
March 16 update: The ADS office has resumed operating remotely, we look forward to working with you - give us a call, send us an email, or initiate the work accommodation process online (link).
Campus members with other risk factors (e.g. age, someone else at home) may also have questions. Support and instructions for all high-risk employees (beyond faculty, staff and student workers with disabilities) are linked here,
General information for faculty with the provision of academic continuity if an emergency situation arises can be found on DoIT's website and Instructional Technology's myUMBC page.
