If the county or a healthcare provider requires me to quarantine and my work cannot be done from home, what options do I have?

Added on |

If you are not sick, but are required to quarantine or isolate, and cannot perform your work from home, you may be eligible for COVID Flex Hours. 

If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine and are sick, you should use COVID Flex Hours or your accrued sick leave. Consult with your manager or school/unit HR manager about other available benefits based on your specific circumstance.

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.

If you are restricted from returning to Stanford by the county or a healthcare provider due to personal travel and are well, but you cannot work from home, you may use COVID Flex Hours, vacation/PTO/floating holiday, or take an unpaid leave of absence.
