Covid Update



5-1-2021

from: UofM

Beginning May 7, faculty, staff and students will no longer be required to wear masks outside on campus grounds. We will still require masks to be worn inside on all University facilities (Main Campus, Park Avenue, Lambuth, Millington, Collierville and the Law School). We will continue to maintain appropriate social distancing both inside and outside. As a reminder, face masks must fit and be worn appropriately:

  • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth;
  • Fasten securely with ties or ear loops and allow the individual to remain hands-free;
  • Fit snugly, but comfortably, against the side of the face;
  • Can be disposable or reusable; and
  • Should be made of breathable material.
The University of Memphis will continue providing a voluntary vaccine community service for faculty, staff and students in partnership with the City of Memphis and the Baptist Medical Group. As a reminder, there is widespread vaccine availability without an appointment, and the University is offering a shuttle to the Pipkin site Monday through Friday through May 7. Register HERE.

Additionally, the Baptist Memorial Group (BMG) will provide first and second doses of Pfizer vaccine to faculty, staff and students on Thursday, May 13, from 9 am-4 pm in the Rose Theatre Lobby. This site does not require pre-registration. For any questions regarding this vaccine distribution, please call 901.227.TEST (8377).

The University is shifting COVID-19 testing from the Hub to the Student Health Center. The facility will offer testing on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 am-2:30 pm. If an individual needs testing outside of these dates and times, please contact the health center at studenthealth@memphis.edu or 901.678.2287.

Citrix (umApps) Access



2-20-2021

Due to a potential security issues, ITS has moved Citrix (umApps) behind the firewall. It can still be accessed from off campus, but now you must use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access it.

How to Connect to the VPN:

AnyConnect is the preferred VPN client. It is compatible with most operating systems, but may not be compatible with some older networking hardware. Begin by going to the VPN install site and log in using your UUID and password (this is the same password that you use for umMail, and all other campus resources). Next, select the download for your OS and follow the onscreen directions.

NOTE:

  • For Apple IOS you will need to download AnyConnect from the Apple Store.
  • For Android OS you will need to download AnyConnect from the Google App Store.
  • For Chromebook OS you will need to download AnyConnect from the Google Web Store.
Instructions:
  • Chromebook
  • PC/Windows - AnyConnect
      A few notes on Win install:
    • When I tested this it did NOT follow the instructions exactly....It installed the software but....
    • Once installed search for "Cisco" in win search tool and run the program found.
    • type vpn.memphis.edu into the textbox, and click on connect
    • login via Single Sign on / Duo
    • Restarting your browser(s) before continuing
  • iOS - AnyConnect
  • MAC OS - AnyConnect
Download AnyConnect Client Software for Linux, Red Hat, Ubuntu from the VPN install site.

Once you have installed the VPN and logged in via Single Sign On (SSO) and Duo, your computer will be vitually part of the UofM network (and be allowed to access umApps). You can disconnect from the UofM VPN by clicking on the cisco vpn icon in your hidden icons try and disconnecting.
