COVID-19 leaves still available, extended to cover boosters
One of many ways Indiana University has protected the IU community during the COVID-19 pandemic is ensuring employees have adequate time off for reasons specific to COVID-19.
In response to the continuing pandemic, IU has made the COVID-19-related leaves for employees available until further notice. The Keep IU Healthy and School and Child Care leaves offer time off for COVID-19-related reasons, including self-isolation, COVID-19 vaccine side effects and child care needs due to COVID-19. You can learn more about eligibility and qualifying reasons to use these leaves at the HR COVID-19 website.
Following the CDC’s recommendation that everyone 18 and older receive a COVID-19 booster, IU strongly encourages employees to get one. As a result, IU has expanded the Keep IU Healthy leave to include adverse reactions to COVID-19 boosters. If employees are unable to work due to adverse reactions, the Keep IU Healthy leave covers up to three days absence for boosters received on or after Nov. 28, 2021.
