Our department is currently assisting the Public Health Department by deploying as many of our employees as possible to serve as Disaster Service Workers in support of the County’s mass vaccination efforts for COVID-19 relief. These employees are temporarily assigned new roles providing essential aid at testing sites and with the distribution of vaccines and inoculation of residents countywide.
