A message on administrative leave for coronavirus

February 5, 2020

Dear colleagues:

In order to abide by the federal government-ordered quarantine (currently 14 days) for all U.S. citizens and others returning from the Hubei province in China, CU Denver | Anschutz employees returning from China who are quarantined will be placed on paid administrative leave.

Employees returning from other areas of China:

(1) who are instructed by the federal government to self-quarantine; and

(2) cannot perform their duties remotely

will also be placed on paid administrative leave.

Quarantine time not worked remotely should be recorded in the leave system as “Administrative Leave."  If an employee is sick for any reason, leave should be recorded as “Sick Leave”. For questions about leave, please contact the CU Denver | Anschutz Human Resources Employee Relations team at 303-724-9686.

For more information on the coronavirus, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
