    UPDATED! Email Etiquette – Tips to Reduce Email Volume and Increase Efficiency – Please Read

    Email volume is enormous. Here are some tips to help us cut down the overall volume.

    1. IF YOU EXPECT AN ANSWER: If you want someone to answer the email, then put their name in the “To:” line.

    2. THE "CC" LINE: For people listed on the “Copy” line, no answer is expected.  Indeed, they should not reply unless they have something really significant to add to the conversation.

    3. IF YOUR RECIPIENT HAS MULTIPLE EMAIL ADDRESSES: Do not send the same email to multiple accounts for the same person.  Simply ask them once which email address is preferred.

    4. BOUNCE-BACK MESSAGES: Are you sure you need a bounce back message to announce you are experiencing a high volume of email?  It doubles the email traffic coming out of your office.

    5. NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON AN EMAIL: Limit the number of people copied on the email.

    • If you are not sure why you are copying someone, then do not copy that person.
    • You can just ask if someone wants to be copied on all email about “topic X”.
    • If it is a major issue, usually copying your “one up” is sufficient.  
    • If someone needs only to know the outcome (as an FYI or for filing the decision), then send them only the final email trail. Or send them a brief summary.

    6. REPLY ALL: Reply All should be used sparingly.

    • Reply only to the people who need to see the answer.
    • Do not use Reply All if you simply wish to acknowledge the email - just reply “thanks” to the sender.

    7. LIST SERVS: List Servs should be used sparingly.

    • Post the message to the Weekly Memo.
    • Target the email only to the subgroup of people who need to see the message.
    • Avoid sending the same message on multiple overlapping list servs.

    8. RESENDING EMAIL: Please do not resend emails to people within 48 business hours of your original email or expect a response before 48 business hours (the expectation of immediate responses is a key reason why people who cannot respond immediately put up bounce-back messages, thus further filling up inboxes).

    Deducting Home Office Expenses and Supplies for the 2020 taxation year

    If you worked from home during 2020 for more than 50% of the time, for a period of at least four consecutive weeks, you are eligible to claim a deduction on your 2020 personal income tax return for home office expenses (work-space-in-the-home expenses, office supplies, and certain phone/internet expenses). Employees who wish to claim home office expenses have the option of selecting either the simplified (or flat rate) method or the detailed method. Click here for an overview. Employees who wish to use the detailed method must have a completed and signed form T2200S from the University.  These forms will be available to employees on or before February 28, 2021. More information on how the forms will be distributed will be communicated closer to that date. Review a detailed FAQ document here. Also available for you to review is a Home Office Expense Calculation Template, that has been prepared for Queen’s by KMPG. This document is intended to assist you in determining which claims method (“flat rate” or “detailed”) would be most appropriate to your personal circumstances, and to help in the completion of your 2020 personal income tax return.  Please read KPMG’s Disclaimer on the Instruction Page of the attached Excel document. Queen’s is providing this Template for informational purposes as a tool for you to use if you wish.  Queen’s assumes no responsibility for your use of this tool.  If you have any questions or concerns about using the calculator or the result(s) it provides once you populate it with your information, please consult your personal financial/tax advisor. Should you have questions about this e-mail, please contact Financial Services at t2200@queensu.ca. Posted here: Monday, February 8, 2021.

    Important COVID-19 Updates

    MOVE TO GREEN -- UPDATED INFORMATION FOR QUEEN'S FACULTY AND STAFF - Following the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington region’s move to the Green level of Ontario’s COVID-19 response framework earlier today, updated information about allowable on-campus work is posted on the Queen’s COVID-19 information site. Faculty and Staff returning to campus under these guidelines are reminded to use the SeQure app for self-screening before coming to campus.

    NEW VARIANT OF COVID-19 FOUND IN KFL&A REGION - Office of the Provost - Please see the KFL&A Public Health NEWS RELEASE (Monday, January 25, 2021), regarding a recommendation for anyone who has travelled outside of the region (i.e., beyond Hastings, Prince Edward, Leeds, Grenville, or Lanark counties), has had visitors from outside the region, or has moved to the region in the last 14 days to consider voluntary, asymptomatic testing for COVID-19. This asymptomatic testing initiative is being recommended in the KFL&A region, as KFL&A Public Health has received the first lab confirmed B.1.1.7 case, a new, more easily transmissible variant of COVID-19 that was first found in the United Kingdom. I strongly encourage all members of the Queen’s community who fall into the above noted categories to get tested. As previously communicated, the university is also requesting that all students, staff, and faculty who have travelled to Kingston from outside the KFL&A, Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, and Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark region, or who have had visitors from outside the region, to self-isolate for 14 days.

    Information on local assessment centres can be found here:

    Thank you for your continued vigilance to protect our community.

      RACISM AND COVID-19 IN CANADA - Hosted by The School of Kinesiology and Health Studies - Speaker: Dr. Arjumand Siddiqi, Professor and Division Head of Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. As the COVID-19 pandemic has raged around the world evidence is emerging that Canada resembles the United States in terms of the clear racial inequity in the impact of the pandemic. COVID-19 is the first time governments are tracking health by race, and it is forcing long overdue discourses in Canadian society to address the racial distribution of COVID-19 in the context of the longstanding, deep seeded issues of racism that have gotten us to this point. In this seminar we will discuss the science of race, racism, and COVID-19 in Canada and the dialogues that have emerged between scientists, community members, and government entities.
