Which staff absence code is best to use when staff are self isolating due to the coronavirus?

Currently there has not been guidance from the DfE on this issue, only for student self isolation (Y code). As the Y code is not counted for attendance, it is advisable to use a similar code for staff absence. You can check your staff absence codes in Admin > Personnel > Staff Absence codes.

If there is no appropriate code here, you have the option to add a new code at the top of the page.
This code will need to be mapped as Not Counted, from the Absence Category dropdown.
If in any doubt what code to use please check with your Local Authority or the DfE.
