COVID Employee Leave

The COVID 19 Pandemic has changed life in the Bay Area and has resulted in Contra Costa County issuing an Emergency Declaration. The emergency situation is expected to last several months. Schools and Day Care Facilities may be closed for an extended period of time. As a result of the Emergency Declaration, all County Employees, whether essential or not are now Disaster Services Workers. This is uncharted territory for many of us and has every County resident and Employee concerned about the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones. Contra Costa moved immediately to allow all employees time to address their immediate needs to make arrangements to provide for family members, school children, or day care. Our main concern is providing services to our vulnerable populations and keeping our employees as safe as possible while we do that.
