COVID-19 Exposure and Quarantine
Employees who have been exposed to, or tested positive for COVID-19, are required to self-quarantine until cleared to return to work by a physician. Employees subjected to a mandatory quarantine will receive up to 14 days of sick time in addition to their authorized allotment. Employees must inform Human Resources if they test positive for COVID-19.
Note that employees who travel voluntarily to states deemed high risk for COVID-19 exposure by New York State shall not be eligible for benefits under the New York State emergency paid sick leave law. (The list of impacted states will be updated frequently and can be found here.) Employees should be aware that voluntary travel to any of these states could result in loss of pay during the required quarantine.
