Expectations and Directives
The following defines the College’s expectations and directives to best protect our community:
Effective immediately, if you, or a family member, have come into close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or has been contacted by the Board of Health, you must self-quarantine for 14 days.
In addition, if you have recently traveled to a designated Level 3 country or have plans to do so in the immediate future, you are required to self-quarantine and stay away from Babson’s campuses (Boston, Wellesley or Miami) for 14 days following your return date to the United States, whether or not you are symptomatic.
Utilizing Sick Leave
If an employee feels ill, particularly with flu-like symptoms, they are encouraged to remain at home and contact their primary-care physician.
Managers are asked to contact Human Resources on each case.
If an employee is sick, they should use available sick time for the period of absence. Employees who are out of work to care for a spouse, dependent child, domestic partner or parent with flu-like symptoms should use available Family Illness time for the duration of their absence. If the employee does not have available sick or family illness time, please contact the Benefits Department.
Employees whose childcare provider/facility or school is not operative due to factors related to COVID-19, are to contact their manager as soon as possible to arrange for time off.
In addition, please be aware there is back up childcare available through the College’s relationship with KinderCare
