City-COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines

Madison City Commissioners took action this week on a policy and some guidelines regarding city employees and COVID-19.  

On Monday, commissioners approved updated employee COVID-19 guidelines.  Kristin Olson, the city’s Human Resource Director, told commissioners that the guidelines outline information on what employees should do if they test positive for COVID-19, are exposed to the virus, or are a close contact to someone who has tested positive.  Olson said that there are guidelines, but that employees will be handled on a case by case basis.

Commissioners also approved an essential employee policy for the city.  Olson said that the policy covers several different areas allowing city departments to continue to serve the community.

Olson said that the policy addresses the options the city departments have for close contacts who are not having any symptoms of COVID-19.

The city’s essential worker policy states that it can change at any time with the approval of commissioners.
