May I take sick leave if a family member has been exposed to the flu or other contagious disease, but the family member is not sick?

You may use sick leave if guidance from the CDC or other health authorities advises that individuals with family members who have been exposed are also considered to be contagious and should also remain quarantined. If such guidance does not exist, you may request annual leave, earned compensatory time off, or leave-without-pay to remain at home with a family member who is not ill.
