Updated 4/27/23 – The Federal Government announced the end of the COVID-19 National Emergency and Public Health Emergency Declarations, therefore, the following is effective immediately:
Employees no longer have to report a positive COVID test through the County’s Employee COVID Self Reporting Form portal.
If an employee receives a positive test, it shall be treated as a personal health condition and staff should use their appropriate accrued leave for any absences.
Best practice guidance for a positive person is for the employee to return to the workplace 5 days after the start of symptoms. Symptoms should be significantly improved upon return.
