COLUMBIA – MU Health Care employees expressed concerns over traffic and parking for the football game on Thursday.

Traffic near Faurot Field is bad on a normal workday during rush hour, but with extra game day traffic, it will be even worse.

An MU Health Care spokesperson said in an email parking lots that are normally reserved for health system employees will be used for fan parking.

Clinics located in University Hospital, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, University Physicians Medical Building and the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute will close at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Multiple University Hospital employees who asked to not be named said they were also concerned they may have to use vacation time for the rest of the day, and the part-time employees would have to leave work without getting paid for those hours.

KOMU 8 News reached out to MU Health Care spokespeople to ask if this is true.

An MU Health Care spokesperson responded in an email, “While many supervisors at MU Health are allowing employees to use vacation, personal time or work from home on Thursday afternoon, no one is required to leave work early.”

KOMU 8 News also asked if employees who cannot work from home or do not have paid vacation time had any options since the clinics they work in are closing.

The spokesperson said in another email, “We’re clarifying with our clinic employees that no one is required to leave work early, and that we will find work for those employees who don’t wish to use vacation or personal leave or take unpaid leave.”

Employees who will be at work for the full day and park in designated football parking lots will have to do some shuffling late Thursday afternoon to avoid being towed.

Employees that park in CG1 must move their cars by 4 p.m. to any level of Parking Structure No. 7.

Employees that park in WG1 must also move their cars by 4 p.m. to Tiger Avenue Parking Structure on Level 3 and above.

After noon Thursday, lots CG1 and WG1 will be exit only. If employees leave for lunch and return to work they will need to park in the alternate lots.
