Important Information for Senate Employees

To help stop the community spread of coronavirus, the Senate has given Appointing Authorities several options so that they may maintain a safe workspace and continue to serve the public.

These options vary but can include staggering workplace staffing or telecommuting. Outside the state and federal restrictions and guidelines in place during the pandemic, how specifically your office operates at this time is up to your appointing authority. If you are at a higher risk of infection, suffer from a pre-existing condition, or are adversely impacted by school closures or lack of services, you need to communicate this to your supervisor.

If you believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus, or have tested positive for COVID-19, please submit a confidential reporting form.
