COVID Leave Information
On February 9, 2022, Governor Newsom signed AB 84. This law provides two “buckets” of leave from January 1, 2022 until September 30, 2022.
The first bucket which we are calling “Option 1” provides for up to five days of COVID leave for reasons we would consider COVID probable or COVID possible, recovering from receiving a COVID vaccination, or caring for a family member who is COVID probable or COVID possible.
The second bucket which we are calling “Option 2” provides for up to five days of COVID leave for an employee who is COVID positive or caring for a family member who is COVID positive.
Although the law only requires a positive test to access the bucket for Option 2, we continue to encourage everyone to stay home and test when you have symptoms. We want all staff to know that regular testing will remain available and encourage you to use this resource to keep schools open as safely as possible.
Unvaccinated individuals or those not wanting to provide the district vaccination information, must still test on a weekly basis.
Adults are fully-vaccinated (staff definition for exposures) - individual is within 6 months out from their second mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) dose (or within 2 months after the J&J vaccine), or, if not within that time frame the individual has received a booster vaccine (CDPH/CDC), or is within 90 days of a positive COVID test result.
The Human Resources Department strives to provide helpful and accurate information when it comes to all employee leaves. In order to provide the best care and because each leave has different circumstances, we ask that employees schedule an appointment with the HR Department (see respective contact below) for more information on any leave type and options available. You may also review your contract (ACT & CSEA) for more information.
