While Caltech closely monitors the spread of COVID-19 around the world, Caltech's Human Resources, Information Management Systems and Services (IMSS), and the Office of the Provost are taking steps to help staff work remotely. Human Resources strongly encourages managers to allow staff to work remotely on a temporary basis, if possible. This website provides information on best practices, available tools, and tips on how to get support in telecommuting.
Human Resources has created Guidelines for Temporary Telecommuting (COVID-19).
Additional information will be added as tools and resources become available over the coming days and weeks.
For updates and communications specifically about Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit this page on Caltech's response to COVID-19.
This depends on the type of data you manage. The Home Computer Recommendations page provides guidelines for home computer use.
