    Just returned from 2 week quarantine due to having family member with Covid-19. At the time notified HR that my docyor said to quarantine. Got back and received no paid leave. UPS is saying that I need a doctor's note. Doctor is saying CDC has told them that companies cannot require a doctors note in this situation for paid leave. Also in this area they were only giving tests to over 80 or severely sick at the time. Anyone successfully file for this yet?

    Personally I'd tell my doctor to get off his high horse and give me that damn note. He can take on UPS with his own money and stop messing with yours.

    Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) - Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers

    • Employers should not require a positive COVID-19 test result or a healthcare provider’s note for employees who are sick to validate their illness, qualify for sick leave, or to return to work. Healthcare provider offices and medical facilities may be extremely busy and not able to provide such documentation in a timely manner.

    I agree. Saying they are going to pay us and doing it are two completely different things.

    So are you saying your family member was never tested because they weren’t over 80 or severely sick at the time?

    There is a difference between a family member actually getting tested and being positive then yes you get paid. But if they are getting quarantined without getting a test I think you are sol

    So you went two weeks without pay and just now are raising hell ? Should have done all this when you were off. Could have went to the doctors and got the note in hand for when you returned.

    Well I dont know how you did it.
    I called the 866# when I was told someone who lives on my house tested positive then did the teledoctor and was told to stay home for 14 days.
    Filled the form from UPSERS and got approved like 6 days later.

    Anybody who is instructed to quarantine is supposed to be eligible.

    My case is still being reviewed.

    I feel bad but I laughed at 2 people today that were like thank you so much for still working and doing everything you do.

    this isn’t the apocalypse people. I’m delivering cardboard when it’s 70 degrees out for $38 an hour. No need to thank me.
