Dear Local 34 members,

We are contacting you regarding our and the University’s response to COVID-19—commonly known as “Coronavirus”. You will soon receive Yale’s communication to staff about the rapidly developing situation. Currently we are working with the University to answer remaining questions about how to perform our work safely, how pay and paid time off may be affected, and plans in case of a closure. We will make updates when they become available.

Right now please follow CDC guidelines to protect yourself and others around you. 

If you experience fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, contact a healthcare provider for guidance—do not go to a healthcare facility before you have called your doctor or a hospital emergency room for instructions. If you are a Yale Health member contact Internal Medicine (203-432-0038) or Pediatrics (203-432-0206) from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For urgent attention 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, please call Yale Health Acute Care (203-432-0123). If you are an Aetna member, please contact your Primary Care Provider.

In Solidarity,

Laurie Kennington, President Local 34–UNITE HERE!

Ken Suzuki, Secretary–Treasurer Local 34–UNITE HERE!
