What if a Dulles Airport or airline employee has COVID-19 symptoms but doesn’t have enough sick leave to remain home?

(Posted 3/11/20): The Airports Authority provides all Airport Authority employees with leave to use if they are sick and cannot work. Airport Authority employees who do not have enough leave to cover their absence due to COVID-19 will be advanced leave to cover their period of quarantine. Employees are encouraged to stay home if they are sick and to notify their manager with any concerns they have. Airlines and non-Airports Authority businesses which have workers at Dulles International maintain their own human resources guidelines for taking sick leave.

CDC COVID-19 information is currently available online, including guidance from the CDC regarding preventing the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick.
