CAN I FORWARD MY DESK PHONE TO MY CELL PHONE ?

No. ESU phone numbers cannot be forwarded to off-campus phone numbers.

ALTERNATIVES TO PHONE

Other communication alternatives include Zoom, Teams, and Email.

WHAT SHOULD YOUR VOICE MAIL MESSAGE SAY?

In the voicemail, let them know about the current situation, and that you are checking your voicemail. Ask them for their email, in order to get back to them.

For Example: "You have reached the desk of Corky the Hornet. Due to Coronavirus Covid-19 precautions, I may be working remotely, however, I am still checking and returning messages. If you leave a voicemail message, please note that I may return your call from an alternate number. If you prefer that I contact you via email, please leave your email address.
