Direct-Access Update - Isolation Leave
We added a new leave type, "Isolation Leave" to DA. Leave type is available under "delay enroute" in PCS orders and also as a "non-chargeable absence". If a member has CG SMR running and goes on "Isolation Leave", DA will automatically credit back the meal charges to the member. Members that will continue to have meals provided by the government should not be put on "Isolation Leave". Both PCS and Non-Chargeable Leave procedural guides have been updated.
