Letter of Access as On-Site Personnel for the University of Massachusetts Amherst During COVID-19

The attached letter is being given to staff designated as on-site employees under an abundance of caution to serve as documentation of your role on campus. The letter should remain in your possession as you commute to and from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, located in Amherst, Massachusetts for work hours. In the unlikely event that a law enforcement officer were to ask about your travel destination, this letter would aid in explaining your necessary travel to the University, and home from the University.
