  3. You are experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus and seeking a medical diagnosis;
  4. You are caring for an individual who is subject to an order as described above or has been advised by a health care provider as described above;
  5. You are caring for a son or daughter if the child’s school or place of care has been closed or the child’s childcare provider is unavailable due to Coronavirus precautions; or
  6. You are experiencing any other substantially similar condition specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Labor.

If your need for leave lasts longer than two weeks, you may utilize other leave and paid time off under company policy to which you are eligible.

School Closing Leave
