COVID-19 Vaccination Pay and Leave Provisions

Pay for Weekly COVID-19 Testing

Covered Individuals who are required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 will be considered to be on work time for the amount of time it reasonably takes to complete the testing process during work hours. Supervisors may determine when and how testing occurs during work hours to minimize interference with assigned tasks. A Covered Individual who is required to test weekly may request a test kit through their college/administrative unit human resources department. Based on the time it takes to complete these tests, the University will allow up to 15 minutes per week of work time for required testing. Covered Individuals may choose to be tested using any acceptable diagnostic test as described in the Appendix: Required COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Covered Individuals, however no more than 15 minutes of paid time will be provided.
