Can disability leave be used if an employee is asked to self-isolate?

Added on |

If you are sick or have tested positive for COVID-19, you can use COVID Flex Hours, sick leave,  and you may be eligible for short-term disability leave through voluntary disability insurance.

If you are not sick, but are required to quarantine or isolate by the county, and/or a physician due to exposure to COVID-19, you may be eligible for COVID Flex Hours

If you are required to quarantine or isolate due to a workplace exposure to COVID-19, and you tested positive for COVID-19 or had a close contact with an employee who tested positive for COVID-19 during the positive person’s high-risk exposure period, and you cannot work from home, you may be eligible to use Quarantine Pay. You may also be eligible for short-term disability leave through voluntary disability insurance.
