EMPLOYEE FAQ'S FOR AISD & CDC Guidelines
Below are some examples of situations and/or frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19. As the number of cases increase, we are finding that each situation is unique, so if you do not find the answers you need here, please call your supervisor to discuss.
1. I have symptoms related to COVID-19. What do I need to do?
Answer: As soon as possible, contact your immediate supervisor. From there you will receive proper guidance and directions for next steps. You will be asked clarifying questions about your symptoms. Stay home until you are 24 hours symptom free. You may return with a negative COVID test. If you test positive, notify your supervisor and follow the procedures for testing positive for Covid 19. Testing may be administered at a district campus for as long as tests are available.
2. My child has been sent home to quarantine because of a COVID-19 exposure/positive result. What do I need to do if I am the primary caregiver and need to stay home with my child?
Answer: As soon as possible, contact your immediate supervisor. You may take state or local leave for the time you need to be out to take care of your child.
3. I had close contact over the weekend to someone that just tested positive for COVID-19 a few days later. What do I need to do? Am I allowed to work?
Answer: You are allowed to come to work as long as you don't have symptoms and you are no longer around the infected person. The employee will be tested on campus on days 1 and 3 as long as tests are available.
4. I am out sick with Covid, what do I do?
Answer: You must report to your supervisor that you have COVID-19; they will go over procedures with you and discuss how long you should be out according to the current protocols. You enter your absences in Frontline for the time you are out for COVID and submit your positive COVID test to your supervisor. You may return to work once you are 24 hours fever free, 5 days have passed from symptom onset or positive test, AND symptoms have been reduced.
Please remember that answers to these scenarios can change based on updates made by CDC and TEA. Always contact your supervisor, or Cyndy Pullen, Director of Human Resources, to get up-to-date information and guidance for any COVID-19 related questions.
