Coronavirus Employee Updates

COVID Discontinuation

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:

  1. Employees no longer have to report a positive COVID test through the County’s Employee COVID Self Reporting Form portal.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
