Administrators and Staff
To Molloy College Employees:
A memo from the President recently went out regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and the plan to continue our educational programs through an alternative delivery modality. The College is also assessing what work that can be delivered on-site and what can be done remotely. If you need special accommodation, and/or are at high risk, or need a sick or paid family leave please see below. Other important information is included below.
Special accommodation: Molloy College is encouraging all members of its community who are classified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 or who care for or live with someone that is classified as higher risk, to remain home. Those who are at higher risk include:
- People aged 60 years or older
- People with underlying medical conditions including:
o Blood disorders (e.g., sickle cell disease or on blood thinners)
o Chronic kidney disease as defined by your doctor. Patient has been told to avoid or reduce the dose of medications because of kidney disease, or is under treatment for kidney disease, including receiving dialysis
o Chronic liver disease as defined by your doctor (e.g., cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis). Patient has been told to avoid or reduce the dose of medications because of liver disease or is under treatment for liver disease.
o Compromised immune system (immunosuppression) e.g., seeing a doctor for cancer and treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation, received an organ or bone marrow transplant, taking high doses of corticosteroids or other immunosuppressant medications, HIV or AIDS)
o Current or recent pregnancy in the last two weeks
o Endocrine disorders (e.g., diabetes mellitus)
o Metabolic disorders (such as inherited metabolic disorders and mitochondrial disorders)
o Heart disease (such as congenital heart disease, congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease)

Please fill out the healthcare accommodations request form or contact Ed Hennessy in the Human Resources Office at 516.323.3028 or at email@example.com. All medical information disclosed will be kept confidential to the greatest extent possible.
Sick Leave or Paid Family Leave: Any employee who becomes sick or must care for a sick relative must inform Ed Hennessy in the Human Resources Office at 516.323-.3028 or at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be expected to apply for leave under the appropriate policy through the Human Resources Department. The employee must also provide subsequent clearance from a qualified medical professional to return to work.
International Travel: All employees who are traveling will be asked to complete the International Travel Screening Form, and will then be contacted with information regarding traveling.
Domestic Travel: Older adults and travelers with underlying health issues should avoid situations that put them at increased risk for more severe disease. This entails avoiding crowded places, avoiding non-essential travel such as long plane trips, and especially avoiding embarking on cruise ships.
Self-Quarantine: If an employee lives with, cares for, or has been intimate with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or has traveled to a country with a Level Two or Three travel advisory from the CDC (CDC Travel Advisory), they will be expected to self-quarantine at home for 14 days prior to returning to work and report the potential exposure to Student Health Services by phone at 516.323.3467.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP): The College’s EAP program through Carebridge Corporation provides confidential guidance, resources and referrals at no cost to Molloy employees and their family members. Carebridge can be reached at 1.800.437.0911.
