COVID-19 Process Checklist

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or
have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19

  Call in Sick.

  Schedule an appointment with a doctor, urgent care, or do a virtual visit with Doctor on Demand and schedule a test.

  When you receive your test results, file for pandemic leave, and provide the requested documentation.

  If your test is negative, your scheduled trips during the waiting period will be removed, paid, and credited, and coded with a DR.

  If you have a positive test, contact the COVID-19 Support Center at 800-447-2000, so they may document your case.

  • The Premise Doctor will call you.
  • You must speak with the Premise doctor before you or any of the crew members you worked with in the 48 hours before your symptoms or your positive test can be removed.  
  • File a Pandemic leave with supporting documentation.
  • Your trips during your quarantine are removed and paid and credited with a DR code.


  If you have been exposed to COVID-19 by a crew member with whom you worked, you will be removed with a code 13.

  Passenger exposures require investigation by Daily Operations before the code 13 removals are processed.

  • If you are mid-sequence, Daily Operations will contact you and coordinate travel back to base or your commuter city.
  • Trips that fall during the quarantine period will be paid and credited.


If you know of a crew member that has been hospitalized with COVID-19, please notify your
base management and Union representatives to initiate contact tracing.

If you were exposed to COVID-19 at work, file an IOD by calling 1-844-777-8463.

  • The laws vary from State to State. Your claim would be in the State where you are based, and you have the legal right to file an IOD.
  • You will speak with a registered nurse, and once you have completed filing your IOD with the registered nurse, you may request to speak with a telemedicine doctor.
