UConn Health's Childcare Center

We recognize that this is an extremely difficult time for our employees and we truly appreciate the first-class care that each one of you provide to our patients. It is our understanding that due to the closing of all Connecticut public schools and many daycares in the area you may be experiencing the need for temporary childcare.

The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) is working with all Connecticut based hospitals to establish capacity across the state to support the needs of our healthcare workers.  United Way, 211 Child Care, has set up a hotline for childcare to help anyone in the state.  The direct number is (860)756-0864.

Telecommuting for UConn Health Employees

All UConn Health employees who are able to perform some or all of the essential functions of their jobs from home will be reviewed by managers for approval to telecommute. Managers and supervisors are currently assessing the telecommuting appropriateness and applicable resource needs, such as technology, for all employees in their units. Please work directly with your manager or supervisor regarding your particular situation. UConn Health's goal is to have as many employees work from home a possible while still allowing UConn Health to perform functions critical to its mission. While the formal telecommuting form and process will be temporarily relaxed during this time, employees will still need approval from directors or higher-level leaders and Human Resources to telecommute. Human Resources questions can be emailed to

Effective immediately, no events larger than 100 people will be permitted at any UConn Health site. This includes all events and meetings.  If possible, alternatives such as teleconference or virtual conferencing methods should be used to hold large events; otherwise they should be cancelled or postponed.  In addition, UConn Health strongly recommends the postponement or cancellation of any non-essential live gatherings and meetings of large groups, even those smaller than 100 people.
