College Employer Council, just before the winter break, finalized policy on isolation pay for onsite teaching faculty who are required to self-isolate.

Essentially, normal pay (not vacation or sick days) should continue for 14 days for all on-site faculty should they be required to self-isolate. The rationale we put forward is that, if required to self-isolate, the faculty member will still be assisting their students remotely.

Employees covered by this Policy shall be eligible for income replacement for up to fourteen (14) consecutive calendar days of absence, or fewer if permitted to return to campus earlier, to undergo testing for COVID-19, and/or due to a mandatory self-isolation as a result of potential contact exposure to COVID-19 as required by Local Health Authorities.
