This Human Resources Policy Guidance is pertinent to the events of the COVID-19 pandemic. This policy pertains to all full-time and part-time employees. All cases will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
- Self-Isolation (not reporting to work)- The guiding principle is that employees should not report to work if they are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, or symptoms that are in accordance with the CDC guidelines for COVID-19.
- If an employee (or member of the employee’s immediate household) has been advised by the Department of Health or their personal physician to self-isolate (not report to work) for any reason, for up to 14 days, they are expected to work remotely, upon approval from immediate supervisor. Proof from a healthcare provider is recommended to be submitted to HR representative. If the employee does not become ill during this time period they will continue to receive pay, and are not required to take vacation or sick time.
- Returning to work should be after a period of self-isolation, and had no symptoms for at least 72 hours.
- An employee who tests positive for COVID-19 or is placed off duty because of a confirmed health exposure must obtain clearance from their healthcare provider or Department of Health.
- Employees choosing not to report to work because they are uncomfortable, must obtain approval from their immediate supervisor to work remotely or to use vacation or personal time.
- If appropriate, supervisors should recommend working remotely or in a staggered and shortened time period in the facility.
- There will be no personnel travel approved at this time. If personal time is taken to travel to a designated high-risk area, a period of self-isolation for up to 14 days may be required or negative COVID-19 test. High-Risk areas are those determined by the CDC.
