Quarantine Leave

On March 11, 2020, the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER) issued policy guidance for employees quarantined due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This policy relates to employees who are placed on mandatory or precautionary quarantine related to COVID-19.

Eligibility

All State employees, regardless of Attendance Rules coverage, are eligible for quarantine leave.

Use of Leave

This policy provides employees leave with pay without charge to accruals, for all workdays within the 14-day period of the quarantine. This leave will be provided regardless of whether employee is symptomatic. If an employee placed on precautionary quarantine can work from home, arrangements should be made to do so. If not, the employee will be placed on leave with pay, without charge to accruals, for all workdays within the 14-day period of quarantine.
