April 30 Extension of COVID-19 Leave Pay for Staff

April 8, 2020

Dear Staff and Faculty,

As I have shared with supervisors, the university will extend Supplemental COVID-19 Leave Pay through the pay period that ends on April 30, 2020. Please complete  to apply for or extend currently approved Supplemental COVID-19 Leave Pay.

Any staff member who meets the following requirements will be eligible to apply for or extend their Supplemental COVID-19 Leave Pay.

You are a staff member who cannot work from home:

  • Due to the nature of your work duties.
  • Because your dependent's school or care center has closed due to COVID-19 and you are the primary caregiver.
  • Other, please share with your supervisor.

You are in a critical on-campus staff role and:

  • You have been diagnosed, tested or are suspected to have COVID-19.
  • You have been asked to self-quarantine or directed to self-isolate.
  • You have an underlying health condition and have been instructed not to be at work. (You do not need to share medical information with your supervisor or colleagues.)
  • Other, please share with your supervisor.

We are extending the Supplemental COVID-19 Leave Pay only through April 30, 2020. We anticipate that further direction for pay periods after April 30 will be communicated in late April. 

Wishing you and your families well,

Michelle Clements
Vice President, Human Resources
