**Important COVID Information**

If you or your child are quarantined due to COVID and you are able to work remote, you will need to request an intermittent leave of absence. To request your leave, please click here. The letter or email instructing your or your child to quarantine is sufficient to approve this type of leave. This allows you to work remote and only submit for the time you actually miss. If you do not miss any work, you do not have to submit any time. However if you do miss work, your time off will be covered by the COVID sick pay until September 30, 2021 or until your 80 hours of COVID sick pay exhaust.

If you or your child are quarantined due to COVID and you are not able to work remote, you will need to request a continuous block leave of absence. To request your leave, please click here.

Benefit Information during the pandemic

 

ATU would like to highlight some of the medical plan benefits during this extraordinary time.

Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Information

Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Health Advantage are committed to the safety and well-being of our members. We are working closely with the state and federal government during the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) to ensure that members get the information and care they need.

Given the nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, seeking in-person medical care may lead to further spreading of the virus. We encourage the use of virtual health and will also facilitate member access and use of nurse/provider hotlines. Because of the high volume of calls, a longer than normal wait time should be expected. Regular copays will apply.
