Should I or should I not come to work?

We understand staff, families, and those who visit state prisons as program providers or volunteers may have concerns and anxiety about COVID-19, but please be assured that there is no need for alarm or to change daily routines. All should follow the precautions recommended by CDC, which expand upon precautions advised during cold and flu season. However, if you are displaying symptoms please do not come to work until you are well—and this should be a routine practice at all times.
