During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending individuals who are sick, or have been exposed to others who are sick, stay home to prevent further spread of the virus.

Employers can use these guidelines to navigate compensating employees who are unable to work, or transition to remote work, for a period of time, due to the need to quarantine or due to a shutdown/layoff by the employer as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). For purposes of these guidelines, the term “paid time off” broadly covers the various benefits provided by employers such as: vacation, employer provided paid sick leave, PTO, and paid personal leave.
