One of our employee's husband tested positive covid 19 and is in hospital under treatment. Our employee is at home and has no symptoms at all. but as a precaution, she stopped coming to the office in the interest of the organization and colleagues.
Now, how do we treat her absence? should we consider her absence as Leave or should we treat her absence as LOP? or is there any other official guidelines to follow in such a situation? Please clarify.

Since the husband is admitted in Covid hospital, she would be required to visit the hospital time and again, so take a liberal view and allow her the leave sought without getting into hyper-technicalities. In deed she is keeping away from office as a precaution for all your employees. These are extra ordinary times, so render all permissible benefits.
