Note for employees: Supporting vaccination clinics is an important initiative. Maintaining continuity of operations within departments is also important. Employees should work with managers and supervisors to have volunteer time approved if the time is during their regular work day. It might be necessary for employees to coordinate shifts.
  • If an employee volunteers for a clinic for Virginia Tech students or employees: Volunteer shifts would be considered time worked and the employee should record the time using the CVT code.
  • If an employee volunteers for a clinic where Virginia Tech is not involved: The employee should still coordinate with their manager to have volunteer time approved. The employee would need to use appropriate leave to cover the regular work hours missed.
