Employee Leave Related to COVID-19

Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and COVID-19 Compassionate Leave Expires 12/31

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the County’s temporary COVID-19 Compassionate Leave policy will expire December 31, 2020. Beginning January 1, employees must use personal accrued sick/vacation hours for COVID-related absences. 

Employees should continue to use safe work practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including self-screening prior to entering the workplace, wearing a face covering when safe social distancing cannot be maintained, and washing hands often. Employees must notify their supervisor if they experience any COVID-19 symptoms, believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or are awaiting test results for COVID-19.
