Good afternoon,

As you are aware from my message over the weekend, Governor Wolf is recommending residents who travel from 15 states (listed below) with spiking COVID-19 case numbers to stay home for 14 days (Department of Health Traveling Information).  We realize many staff have pre-planned vacations scheduled to some of these states.  If you have scheduled travel to any of the 15 states listed below, please reach out to your direct supervisor.   

If you do not have existing travel plans to any of the 15 states listed below with spiking COVID-19 cases, we are kindly requesting you refrain from traveling to these locations.  The CCIU is committed to maintaining a safe work and school environment and this requires everyone’s assistance. This measure is designed to make sure staff don’t have contacts that could spread the virus locally, defeating months of mitigation measures.  

Employees who do travel to the 15 states listed below will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return to Pennsylvania. Staff may be able to telework if their position allows but please know that telework may not be possible for all.  Please contact your direct supervisor for clarification on whether or not you are able to telework. Those unable to telework will be allowed to utilize paid time under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), if eligible.  If ineligible for FFCRA, employees will be required to utilize their paid personal or vacation time, or if unavailable, time off will be unpaid.

As a CCIU community, we must continue mitigation efforts to avoid the spread of COVID-19.  This includes limiting travel to states with spiking COVID-19 numbers, avoiding large gatherings, wearing face coverings, washing hands, and social distancing. Thank you for your continued flexibility as we navigate the ever changing COVID-19 landscape.  

 

Sincerely,

Dr. George F. Fiore
