Updated Academic Personnel Guidance re: COVID-19 Related Leaves - October 2021

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, the time in which to use EPSL has been extended through 6/30/22.  The Academic Personnel Guidance Regarding COVID-19 Related Leaves has been updated along with the EPSL form.  The SHR COVID-19 Related Leaves Guidance has also been updated and a communication has been posted on UCNet.

Please share the updated guidance and form with others at your location.  In addition to the extension through 6/30/22, the most notable changes are the elimination of Reason 6 (“other substantially similar condition specified by HHS Secretary”) and the change in name to “Extended EPSL.” 


Please let us know if you have any questions.
