If you are out of work due to COVID because you are caring for yourself or a family member, and alternative work arrangements are not possible, your absence should be charged to your available sick, personal, floating holiday, or vacation time.


If you test positive, remain at home and notify your primary care physician, your Clark supervisor, and close contacts both on campus and in your personal life. The CDC defines “Close Contact” as close contact through proximity and duration of exposureSomeone who was less than six fee away from an infected individual for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes). Clark follows CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation.

Once the isolation period has ended, you may return to work following CDC protocols and with the clearance of your health care provider. If your job allows you to work remotely, you should do so until you test negative. Please be in contact with your supervisor to assess your availability to return to campus.
