County Implements Employee Action to Remain Proactive in Flattening the Curve of Spreading COVID-19
Following the Emergency Board of Commissioners meeting held this morning, Chairman Michelle Morgan held a Carroll County department head meeting via teleconference to ask each department to follow the resolution adopted by each board member setting forth the order to impose social distancing requirements. Chairman Morgan asked each department head to begin rotating employees a week at time or on a basis that would be appropriate for their department to ensure employees stay healthy and be able to maintain a reserve work force to call in as needed so that essential functions of the County can be met. Employees will be continued to be paid as they will be performing any work they can from home and will be required to remain on call to handle issues that arise or to come into the office as needed.
Our goal by doing this is to remain proactive in staying ahead of the curve when making decisions that will keep our employees and community healthy and safe. We want our employees to set the example of sheltering at home and social distancing, in hopes that other businesses and individuals will follow suit.
