Updates on University's Winter Season Days, College of Medicine's Emergency Policy

The University of Cincinnati has designated December 27-30, 2016, as winter season days—time off in addition to the 10 approved university holidays. During the winter season days, most employees within the College of Medicine will not be required to report to work. However, each department/unit within the college should determine if staff coverage is required to support its mission.

Employees with questions about whether or not they are required to work should contact their immediate supervisor or EDBA. Employees who are required to work will receive comp time for the days worked. These days should be used by June 30, 2017, and cannot be paid out.

Also, as cold weather approaches and the chance for inclement weather increases, the UC president or a designated executive officer may announce through the UC email system and through local news media if the university’s offices and facilities are closed for part of or all of a workday. Information can also be found at or by signing up for emergency text messaging.

Employees in the College of Medicine in the following categories are considered "essential employees” and are expected to report to work as scheduled during emergency closings:

• All College of Medicine faculty and clinically focused staff.
• Dually compensated staff.
• Employees with decanal appointments.
• Other staff identified by department/unit head.
