To All DPW Employees beginning on April 1, 2020:

Cattaraugus County is working diligently to provide further safeguards for all employees when dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, Chairman VanRensselaer has issued Directive #11-2020 COVID-19 Entry Screening at County Facilities. To ensure employees are safe to report to work and that the work environment remains healthy, please follow the following process:

1. All employees must self-monitor their temperature every 12 hours whether at work or at home.

2. All employees reporting for work, regardless of location, (DPW building, Transfer Stations, Highway Barns, Marina, County Office buildings, Little Valley School building or any alternative work site), must ensure you have taken your temperature before reporting for your shift. You must also be able to confirm that you do not have a fever, respiratory symptoms, or a cough. This not only protects you, but protects your co-workers.

3. If you do not have a thermometer, please report to your nearest County building listed below to be screened before coming in to work. Notify your Supervisor of the location you used to be screened upon arrival at work.

4. If you are assigned to work at the Olean County Building you must enter through the front doors and be screened there. If you are assigned to the Little Valley County Center you must enter through the front door or the basement door located by the IT department (if you have access) and must be screened there. If you are assigned to the Little Valley Central School building, you must enter at the Board of Elections entrance to be screened.

5. If you have a temperature 100 degrees or over, STAY HOME and immediately report this to your Supervisor. Any employee who experiences a high temperature (over 100 degrees), will not be allowed to come to work.

6. All Supervisors who are responsible to call in employees and/or receive a call from someone with a temperature must track that employee’s name and date of the call on the log provided to them (see attached). The Supervisor must direct the employee to call the County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 716-938-9119 as soon as possible. Supervisors must submit their tracking log of employees off from work with symptoms to Lorrie Fisher via e-mail on a daily basis (lbfisher@cattco.org).
