If an employee is only on campus once a week and is part of an inconclusive pool, are they “on the clock” for the time they need to come in to test again?

Last Updated: 2021-09-01 02:14 pm

We encourage employees to come to the test center during their regular work hours. If you are not scheduled to be on campus and must come to campus in order to take a test, please do so during your normal working hours. For an non-exempt employee, you will be paid straight time as if you are working. For exempt salaried employees, you will be paid your regular salary.

If someone works hybrid this fall, and they are diagnosed with COVID and have to isolate, but are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, can they continue to work remotely or do they have to take sick time?

Last Updated: 2021-09-01 02:10 pm

If a staff member is required to stay home due, either because they are a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID or is themself positive for COVID and feels well enough to work, they can discuss with their manager working remotely for the time that they are required to remain home. The decision will be based on the required job responsibilities.Individuals who are not feeling well enough to work must take a sick day.
