Total number of COVID-19 cases at City Facilities: 4 employees have tested positive for COVID-19.

In an abundance of caution, the City of Glendale immediately notifies all individuals who would have had close contact with the impacted employee (i.e. being within 6 feet of a person infected or believed to be positive for more than 10 minutes). The individuals who would have been exposed to the impacted employee are placed on a 14-day offsite isolation.  Additionally, despite having increased cleaning/sanitizing frequencies, we have contracted to have the worksite further sanitized to ensure we do everything within our ability to protect our employees.

Please remember, there is no substitute for proper hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Face Coverings:

Effective immediately, all members of the public will be required to wear face coverings when visiting essential businesses and when leaving their homes.  Accordingly, all employees will now be required to wear face coverings when in a common area.  These recommendations are in line with the guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control and believed to protect those around you. 

Telecommuting:

Effective March 18, 2020, the City implemented a temporary telecommuting policy which is designed to allow designated employees to fulfill their primary job responsibilities from home or other remote location most commonly using a computer, internet connection, and phone.  

Travel:

Employees are strongly encouraged to refrain from utilizing air travel for the foreseeable future as recent reports identify this form of travel as a serious exposure risk for spread of the illness.  Employees who travel by airplane will be required to remain away from the workplace for a period of 14 days following their return flight home.  At the end of the 14 days, each employee will be required to obtain a note from their physician reflecting their fitness for returning back to work.  

Rideshare:

The City has temporarily suspended the employee rideshare program as it is impossible to practice safe social distancing by sharing a vehicle.  

Mental Health and Coping During COVID-19:

The City’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers free and confidential services for employees and their family members for matters including but not limited to, stress management, anxiety and depression, and work/life balance.  All employees are encouraged to utilize this available resource.

 

It is imperative that we maintain the health of our employees. Given the fluidity of the situation, we will continue to adjust and proactively adapt to the ever-changing condition in order to ensure continued service delivery to the residents and businesses that depend on us.
