Stay Home if you are Sick
Staff should continue to stay home if they are sick. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or known exposure to COVID-19, please follow the CDC guidance relative to your situation (link below). Please do not assume your symptoms are something else until a test confirms so. Please follow the CDC guidance to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our workplace.
Remote work Agreements
Work at home agreements exceeding a few days, must be mutually beneficial to the agency and the employee. Work from home agreements will include a list of projects or assignments and require progress reports at intervals set by the supervisor. Options should be discussed with your supervisor and your Division Administrator.
Situations where employees are isolating due to potential or reported exposure to COVID-19, may have options to work from home. Each will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Work from home options should be exercised when suitable for the agency and employee. Formal agreements are not required for short term or one-off work at home situations.
