What do I do if I’m sick? 

If you experience any COVID-19-like symptoms, please stay home and follow the directions below. If you experience any of these symptoms while present on campus, please be certain to observe social distancing guidelines as you exit the campus.

  • Notify your manager/ Dean/Department Chair if you are unable to report and seek guidance on how to report your time.
  • Contact your medical provider.
  • If your illness is non-COVID-19 related, please stay home until symptoms have resolved for 24 hours without the use of medication.
  • If you are tested for COVID-19 and found to be positive, follow the steps below.  

What do I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

  1. Notify Human Resources by filling out the COVID-19 Reporting Form. The form can be completed by the employee or their manager.
  2. Upon notification, Human Resources will contact the employee to advise on next steps and when employee can return to campus.
  3. If employee has been on campus recently, Human Resources and Risk Management will determine if additional individuals need to be notified about potential exposure and coordinate for any areas to be disinfected.

COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave

The Governor of California signed Senate Bill 114 on February 9, 2022, which provides additional COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (SPSL) for all employees with the exception of work study employees.  Up to 80 hours (10 days) of supplemental paid sick leave are available effective January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022, for employees unable to work due to the following COVID-19 reasons.

Eligible employees must request SPSL by completing the COVID-19 SPSL 2022 form in Adobe Sign or the PDF version found under our COVID-19 Related Forms on the Human Resources website.  Attach a copy of the positive test results if SPSL is being requested for yourself or a family member that has tested positive for COVID-19.

Employee Assistance Program

 The Employee Assistance Program is a free, confidential counseling and referral service designed to help employees and their eligible dependents resolve personal, work, or home life events. Benefits eligible employees in all bargaining units are eligible for these services.

If you encounter a student in need

The Presidential Pioneers Emergency Fund provides immediate assistance to CSUEB students in need due to the COVID-19 crisis. Students seeking support from the Presidential Pioneers Emergency Fund should complete the Student Application for Emergency Assistance through Pioneers for H.O.P.E.

Additionally, the East Bay CARES program helps at-risk students. Faculty and staff can make a student of concern report for students with academic, behavioral or personal challenges.
