Doesn’t making an exception for coronavirus set a precedent that opens the door for employees with other serious illnesses?

No. Each incident of the coronavirus should be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and any exceptions outside of normal policy should be noted in writing.

Employers should apply the guidance set forth in this FAQ uniformly and in a manner that does not discriminate based on any protected characteristic (e.g., national origin, gender, race, etc.). Many situations may arise regarding the coronavirus. Please contact the Department of Human Resources if you need assistance.
