Message from Human Resources, COVID-19 Related Absences March 13th, 2020

UIS Human Resources is continuing to monitor the news and guidance related to COVID-19.  All faculty and staff should familiarize themselves with the guidelines on COVID-19 Related Absences issued by University of Illinois System HR on Thursday, March 12th.  Please direct any questions to Human Resources at or call 217.206.6652.

If you believe you may need to self-quarantine due to travel, please contact HR for guidance before returning to work. Similarly, if you supervise an employee who may need to self-quarantine upon returning from travel, please contact HR prior to the employee’s return to work.  Approval for self-quarantine, with pay, will be granted according to the guidelines set forth in the COVID-19 Related Absences communication, but should be coordinated through the employee, immediate supervisor, and Human Resources.

Thank you.
