What happens if my child’s school and/or day care closes? Do not bring your children to work. However, you can use any type of leave to cover the absence. Work with your supervisor to see if telework or flex time is possible.
 
Will I get paid if the office closes due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus? Yes, payroll will process as normal. Instructions on how to submit timesheets will be forthcoming.
 
Can I work from home to avoid coming into the office? Each agency will need to determine what duties can be completed remotely and which positions might be eligible to work from home.

How long will the impact of COVID-19 virus last? We don’t know the answer to that. Right now, the goal is to prevent the spread of the virus. Be assured the situation is being closely monitored.
 
When will a decision be made to close the office? The situation is being constantly monitored. At this time, we are conducting business as usual, although we ask that you work with your supervisors to determine if travel, conferences, meetings, etc. are necessary.
 
If the office closes how will I be notified? If your agency closes you will be notified through the Everbridge system. Please log in to https://member.everbridge.net/892807736722990/login and make sure your contact information is up to date.
