As the holidays approach, traveling may be a part of your plans. If so, and your plans include international travel, you may be required to use your leave to quarantine before you return to campus. Consider the following as you plan winter break travel:

If you are traveling internationally:

Please note that at this time, all international travel is considered high risk for contracting COVID-19. Therefore, a quarantine may be required prior to returning to work on campus, and you may be required to use your sick or vacation leave to quarantine for up to 14 days before returning to campus.

To determine if your travel destination will require you to use your accrued leave to quarantine before returning to work on campus, contact Tanya Mayan, HR analyst and Valencia’s specially trained COVID-19 case manager at COVIDillness@valenciacollege.edu or 407-299-5000, extension 3047, or Organizational Development and Human Resources at HR4U@valenciacollege.edu or 407-299-5000 extension HR4U (4748).

Please remember to review our illness reporting and contact-tracing protocols. Full details and resources are available on the Illness Reporting and Contact Tracing webpage.
