COVID-19 Info for Employees
After discussion with the City Manager's Office, there has been several changes related to COVID exposure and illness.
- Employees who have remaining Emergency Sick Leave from the 80 hours that was provided at the onset of the COVID pandemic, will see any remaining hours of Emergency Sick moved into their sick leave time effective October 11, 2021. Tracking of Emergency Sick Leave for COVID purposes is no longer necessary (employees who have balances of emergency sick will receive a notification of their individual balance transfer to their sick time before October 27, 2021).
- Additionally, for the long-term management of COVID related illness and exposure for civilians (excludes uniformed police and fire) will be treated as any other illness.
- Employees should determine if they should report to work, work at home, or utilize sick leave for exposures.
- Employees who are symptomatic from any illness should stay home and utilize sick time
- The City no longer has a COVID Coordinator that should be contacted. However, employees should continue to exercise precaution and good judgment with regards to contagious illness to help protect yourself and others.
- If an employee chooses to have a COVID test, the tests are available at Cigna in-network providers including CVS, Walgreens, Care Now, and your primary care physician.
- The Federal Government has now released free, at-home COVID-19 tests. Details and how-to order the tests can be found here: COVID Home Tests | USPS
