COVID-19 & Wellness

  • What if I am sick?

    If an employee is feeling unwell (but able to work) with symptoms of cold, flu or fever they should work from home and call their health care provider if their condition worsens. Employees who are returning from a high and rising incidence area (greater than 10 new cases daily per 100,000 residents) will need to self-quarantine for at least 10 days. Please check with your direct supervisor. 

    When sick, employees should follow normal call out procedures in their divisions. Employees should also record their time away from work when sick in Pioneer Time per normal practices. 

    If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, contact your healthcare provider immediately. Call your healthcare provider before showing up so that their office can take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

    If you have any questions, please contact your HR partner in HRIC.

  • What do I do if I've exhausted my sick leave?

    Non-benefitted employees and those that have exhausted their sick leave may be eligible for up to four days of paid sick leave through the Colorado Health Emergency Leave with Pay (HELP). To be eligible, employees must be exhibiting flu-like symptoms and test for COVID-19. If you have any questions, please contact your HR partner in HRIC.

    The University of Denver in collaboration with staff advisory council has stood up an emergency vacation donation pool that can assist some individuals in need. Contact your HR partner to learn more.
