If you have been denied a COVID-19 medical accommodation by the DOE, fill out the UFT's notification form.
If you are the primary caregiver for your family member, and you live with her or him, you have priority for a remote position. If remote positions exist in your school, you should be assigned to one as soon as is practicable.
I recently developed a medical condition that puts me at higher risk. How do I ask for a medical accommodation?
My medical accommodation expires in December. When should I re-apply?
If your condition doesn’t change and the environmental conditions don’t change, you shouldn’t have to reapply. We are working to make sure that is the case.
If I am on a leave of absence, can I apply for a medical accommodation before I return?
Yes. There is no deadline to apply for the accommodation.
I live with someone who has an underlying medical condition that puts them at higher risk if I bring COVID-19 home. Has anything been negotiated for members like me so that I can work remotely?
We have given the DOE a proposal to give members in your position first priority on additional remote positions, but nothing has been finalized yet.
