Employee FAQ's - Revised as of April 2, 2021

On March 16, 2020, Alameda County issued a Shelter-In-Place Order that has been extended and modified several times as California continues to battle COVID-19. The City has kept its employees informed by distributing and posting online Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”). These updated FAQ’s supplement, and where indicated, replace previously issued FAQs.

Please be advised that these FAQs contain important information regarding safety and your right to additional time off, including Emergency Paid Sick Leave, under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). While the FFCRA expired at the end of 2020, the City is voluntarily extending some aspects of the FFCRA through the City’s Extended Program (see FAQ #13).

Please review every FAQ (but particularly FAQs #29 - #33, because they contain important information on the City’s obligations regarding workplace exclusion if you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19. If you have questions, please contact your supervisor or manager or Departmental HR Single Point of Contact (SPOC).
