With the elimination of the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, effective immediately the University will discontinue the COVID-19 vaccine sick day and use of the time code CVE in HRMS. Employees may use time from their PTO or sick bank if they are unable to work following a vaccine dose. While the University no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination, it is encouraged for students, faculty, and staff. Employees can continue to receive up to four hours of paid time off to receive a COVID-19 vaccine without having to use their existing PTO, sick time, or vacation. Visit the University’s website for details on using sick time or more information on health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19.
