As we have seen throughout the state and here in San Diego County, COVID-19 cases among the city workforce are increasing significantly, likely due to the fast-spreading Omicron variant.
On Monday, 12/27, we reported 21 new positive COVID-19 cases, 14 of which resulted in workplace exposures since the last update.
It is more important than ever to follow all COVID-19 health precautions and know what to do if you think you may have been exposed. Our COVID-19 staff page is a good place to start:
COVID-19 flow chart - What to do if you experience COVID-19 symptoms or think you have been exposed.
COVID-19 intake form - To be filled out if you have tested positive or had close contact/live with someone who tested positive and you are not vaccinated.
Staff Q&A - If you have additional questions, please email HRmailbox@carlsbadca.gov
As we continue to closely monitor local COVID-19 updates and county health guidance, our protocols will remain in place.
For those that can work from home, coordinate with your supervisor to telecommute for the next few weeks.
Stay home if you have any symptoms; err on the side of caution.
Mask up while inside any city building.
Limit indoor meetings.
Maintain a 6-foot distance from others.
No handshakes or other physical contact.
Wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds each time.

Please continue to do your part to protect yourself and others so we are ready to carry out the work of local government on behalf of our community.
