COVID-19 leave

Any days you are unable to work due to COVID-19 should be entered into Absence Management as sick days.

To be considered for COVID-19 Leave, you must first email our district health coordinator to receive your quarantine orders:

After you receive your orders, submit the form below and HR will review your request for approval. If approved, your leave time will not be charged. 

This process takes a minimum of two payroll cycles to be reflected on your paystub. 

Please note: An employee shall not qualify for sick leave under New York’s COVID-19 sick leave law for more than three orders of quarantine or isolation. The second and third orders must be based on a positive COVID-19 test for the individual employee.
