Will employees be paid for their time spent getting tested? Does this include travel time?

Testing is a work obligation for both hourly and salaried employees who work on campus and are not vaccinated. If an employee needs to make a trip to campus to test in order to be in compliance with this requirement, they may do so during their normal work hours.

Employees shall be granted a reasonable amount of time during their normal work hours to complete required COVID-19 testing, including reasonable travel time. Hourly employees must test during their normal work hours. Salaried employees may test either during their normal work hours or at other times, but they will not receive any additional compensation (outside of their standard compensation package) for their time spent getting tested, regardless of when they do so.
