Employees who receive a positive test result for COVID-19 MUST notify the college immediately using the Employee Self-Reporting Form. Employees who test positive for COVID-19, should use COVID-19 time for up to 5 calendar days regardless of vaccination status. Effective immediately, employees who do not complete the self-reporting form will not be approved for COVID-19 time and must use another form of paid time away to be paid. Effective January 2, 2023, employees will be required to utilize their own PTA balances if they are unable to report to work due to a positive COVID-19 test, regardless of vaccination status.
Employees MUST also notify their supervisor if they are unable to report to work. Employees are not required to reveal any medical diagnosis, to their supervisor. However, in keeping with current policy, if an employee is unable to report to work for any reason, the employee is expected to notify their supervisor as soon as possible that they will be unable to report to work.
If an employee notifies a supervisor that the employee has tested positive for COVID-19, the supervisor must treat all employee medical information as confidential information.
