If a city employee travels to a Level 3 area as designated by the CDC, they must be excluded from work for the duration of the 14-day monitoring period. City employees should follow this guidance from the Alabama Department of Public Health to self-monitor for 14 days after leaving the affected area. Employees should notify their immediate supervisor, if applicable, to let them know they are self-monitoring for COVID-19.
Employees who choose to travel to a level 3 area and are required to participate in the 14 day self-monitoring period will be instructed to use AVAIL time and will not be paid for time missed if AVAIL is not available.
If a city employee travels anywhere outside of the state of Alabama, they will be asked to complete this form. The basic information gathered in this form is necessary so that the city may take precautions to protect the health and safety of all employees.
Because this is a quickly-evolving situation, we are committed to transparent practices with our employees. Please continue to monitor the CDC website for changes among the travel tiers classification.
