COVID-19 Positive Leave Hours Temporary Benefit Extended Through December 31, 2020

​Great News!

The additional 80 hours for COVID-19 Positive benefit has now been extended through December 31, 2020. 

  • What if I’m sent home waiting from my COVID test results to come back? Can I still use this benefit?

  • The answer is YES. You can use this benefit if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, have been sent home, and are waiting to be tested or have already been tested for COVID-19, starting from the day you are sent home. If you receive a positive COVID-19 result, you can continue receiving COVID-19 Positive leave hours while you are recovering, up to the maximum that applies to you. If you receive a negative result and still need time off, you are no longer eligible for COVID-19 Positive leave hours and will need to use other time off available to you, such as paid time off (PTO), earned time off (ETO), vacation time, or sick leave, if eligible. 

  • If you took time off between June 14th and July 9th due to COVID-19 illness, symptoms or testing, you may have your hours recoded as COVID-19 Positive leave hours. Ask your manager to make a previous pay period adjustment to change any sick leave, PTO, or ETO hours to COVID-19 Positive leave hours.
