COVID-19 Employee Help Center

  • Effective March 11, 2024

    The CDC recently updated the guidelines for individuals who test positive for COVID-19.

    Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are no longer required to isolate for 5 days. It is recommended that individuals stay home until they have been fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours, and their symptoms are improving. Staff are encouraged to take additional precautions for the next 5 days, including wearing a well-fitting mask and limiting close contact with others.

    You may be eligible for paid sick time under New York State COVID19 leave. Please carefully review the information below:

    • Staff who test positive should notify their supervisor and Covid19leave@nasboces.org. A copy of a positive PCR test result must be included in your notification. 
    • Over-the-counter home tests will no longer be accepted.

    Please download and complete the New York State COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Request form, after you have returned to work, https://www.nassauboces.org/covidleaveform and return it to COVID19leave@nasboces.org with the required documentation.

    The COVID-19 Leave team will notify you once a determination has been made.
