But what shift are you considered to be on? Day? Swing? Mid? In any case there are only 8 hours a day that you’re on excused absence, so there are 16 others that you can go anywhere or do anything you please. As long as you can make it back for your next shift period if called inI think you’re supposed to use your own leave if you’re going to be doing anything that could be seen as a ‘vacation.’ We’re technically on excused absence, not leave, only because it’s impossible for us to telework with what we do. If the agency is paying someone to stay at home and self isolate/social distance, but then you’re posting pictures of yourself sitting on some beach 500 miles away, that’s not going to look very good. If you travel to ride our corona with family though and aren’t living it up, I’d say that’s a different story. I also heard if you’re recalled and cannot report within 24 hours, that could be an issue.
