How will sick leave work for staff who are required to quarantine or have COVID-19?

Posted by:

If exposed, tested and positive, the employee will receive a form of emergency sick leave through the Family First Coronavirus Response Act.  If quarantined, and able to work remotely, the employee would still be working and not have to use sick days.  

If negative and not returning to work, the employee will take regular sick leave.

We have created the SCPS COVID Related Leave Decision Tree to help answer some of your questions. 

The Kentucky Department of Education has guidance that SCPS will follow regarding leave.

You can read about the Family First Coronavirus Response Act which will govern decisions regarding  leave for our employees. 

Here is a link to the Kentucky School Board Associations COVID leave information.
