By order of Governor Cuomo, anyone traveling to a state (after June 25th) with positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or higher than a 10% test positivity rate, over a seven day rolling average, and which the commissioner of the department of health has designated as meeting these conditions is required to quarantine for 14 days.

Please note – As we at Monroe are classified as first responders, there are alternate stipulations for returning to work after traveling to any of the impacted states, which we will be following. These requirements are listed below:

- Employee must seek diagnostic testing for COVID-19 as soon as possible (within 24 hours)
- Employee must monitor temperature, social distancing, wear face coverings, clean and disinfect work area for minimum of 14 days
- Employee must avoid extended period in the public, contact with strangers, and large gathers for at least 7 days

On Friday 06/26/2020, the Governor issued Executive Order 202.45 sharing employees who travel voluntarily to any of these states are not eligible for benefits under the New York State emergency paid sick leave law. PLEASE be aware that voluntary travel to any of these states could result in loss of pay during the required quarantine.

The list of impacted states will be updated frequently and can be found on the Department of Health website (https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory). As of this morning 6/30/2020, these states are Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.

COVID Testing

Essential workers in NYS may now make an appointment to be tested at the MCC COVID drive-through testing facility! Call the COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or make an appointment online at covid19screening.health.ny.gov

Please review the below reminders before scheduling an appointment:

  • If you are asymptomatic, be sure to schedule your testing appointment on a non-work day as wait times vary

  • Also for those that are testing but are asymptomatic, it is expected you will continue to work all scheduled shifts pending your results.  Currently, results should arrive in 3-5 days from test date. Should you test positive for COVID-19, your health team will designate the length of time that you will quarantine.  It is necessary that you submit the required documentation to Monroe. Should your test be negative, no documentation is required to continue working.

  • NO MATTER THE OUTCOME OF YOUR TEST RESULT you will continue to be held to the same PPE standards and precautionary actions as all employees of Monroe Ambulance.

Remember that this test is a snapshot of your COVID status for the moment you were tested. It is not indicative of a previous or future COVID diagnosis, nor should it be assumed that any precautionary actions can change due to your results.

More info can be found HERE

Childcare Scholarships Now Available for Essential Workers

During the COVID-19 crisis, income-eligible essential workers in Monroe, Livingston and Wayne counties can apply to Child Care Council Inc. for scholarships to pay the full cost of child care.

To qualify, families of eligible workers must have an adjusted gross income at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty level, which amounts to an annual income of $78,600 for a family of four. Essential workers using a licensed or registered child care provider will receive a scholarship for the cost of care while New York state is on PAUSE, as long as the funds to support it are available.

Eligible essential employees can apply for a scholarship by contacting Child Care Council at CARES@childcarecouncil.com or (585) 654-4720. Council staff will contact applicants within one to two business days to gather more information and help identify a participating child care program or work with their current registered or licensed child care provider. The Council will use the gathered information to establish that they are an essential employee, enroll them in the CARES Child Care Scholarship and ensure that the child care program gets paid.
