Full-time employ- ees are eligible for 80 hours of paid leave while part-time employees are el- igible for the number of hours of leave that the employee works on average over a two-week period. 1.The employee is subject to a fed- eral, state or local quarantine or isola- tion order related to COVlD—19. “2'7Tfi'e .ernplgyee, has b er; advised by a health “ca to'sélf-quar- v antine due taf‘iiibfi’éérrfis‘related t0 COVID—19.‘ . 3.The employee is experiencing symptoms of COVID—1 9 and seeking a medical diagnosis.
