CONTINUATION OF PAY
Per Dr. Kent's email on Friday, March 20th, at this time, Medical Center employees will continue to be paid. You should report any time scheduled but not worked due to COVID-19 operational changes as "Emergency Administrative Time Off." You will receive more information about redeployment in the coming days.
IMPACTED BY THE VIRUS - Leave
As of March 26, all employees, including wage and temporary employees, are eligible for up to 160 hours of Public Health Emergency Leave (PHEL) if they have been impacted by the virus. This includes employees in both the Academic Division and Medical Center. Based on guidelines from the Virginia Department of Human Resources, this leave is available to employees who have been directed to self-quarantine by a qualified health care provider, have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or have an immediate family member who was diagnosed with the disease.
Employees whose illness and/or isolation extends beyond two weeks (160 hours) must use other existing leave and/or disability policies to cover the remainder of their time off.
