Winter weather forecast for Thursday; Vanderbilt classes operating on schedule

COVID-19 testing center remains open; essential staff should report

The Nashville area is under a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11. The forecast calls for freezing rain showers that could persist throughout the day on Thursday. There is a possibility for ice accumulation that could impact the area.

All Vanderbilt University classes will be conducted on their normal schedule. Faculty members will notify students should there be any change to class arrangements.

The COVID-19 testing center at the David Williams II Recreation and Wellness Center will be OPEN.

Staff who are considered “essential” should make plans, in collaboration with their managers, to report to work if they are safely able to do so. Staff who are working remotely should continue to work remotely during this weather event. Staff who are currently working on campus but not designated by their department leader as “presence-based essential” should consult with their supervisor to determine whether to report to campus or, if feasible, to work remotely. In all cases, if staff have questions about their work location or expectations, they should contact their supervisor. (Staff covered by a collective bargaining agreement are subject to established departmental policies regarding attendance.)

All faculty, staff and students living off campus are strongly encouraged to evaluate road conditions along their commute and to use discretion in choosing whether or not to travel to campus. Personal safety is the first priority.
