UTD has received your request for information. In accordance with the Mayor of Dallas’s order to shelter in place effective [11:59 March 24, 2020], UTD’s physical offices are currently closed. Per the Attorney General’s guidance, if a governmental body has closed its physical offices for purposes of a public health or epidemic response, then such day is not a business day, even if staff continues to work remotely or staff is present but involved directly in the public health or epidemic response. Please visit https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/open-government/governmental-bodies/catastrophe-notice/update-calculation-business-days-and-covid-19<https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.texasattorneygeneral.gov%2Fopen-government%2Fgovernmental-bodies%2Fcatastrophe-notice%2Fupdate-calculation-business-days-and-covid-19&data=02%7C01%7CVanessa.Balderrama%40utdallas.edu%7C8b24b16f79dc48b0338908d7d0592f6e%7C8d281d1d9c4d4bf7b16e032d15de9f6c%7C0%7C0%7C637206953792348752&sdata=Pk1Lsw0b8E96Vwji%2F1mgWBsnoq%2BwKDfQZ1nL51lUhu0%3D&reserved=0> for more information.
