COVID-19 Related Illness and/or Diagnosis - Essential Personnel

Pursuant to Mercer County's Time and Attendance Provisions, if you have been:

  1. Diagnosed with COVID-19;
  2. Directed by a medical professional or government agency to self-isolate or quarantine due to suspicion of exposure; 
  3. Are undergoing a period of self-quarantine or isolation pursuant to public health assessment recommendations; 
  4. Require leave to care for an immediate family member who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and they meet one of the three conditions stated above:

You will not be required to use accumulated leave time if you provide documentation verifying the same within three (3) workdays from the initial absence. All medical documentation should be sent to Alejandra M. Silva via e-mail at amsilva@mercercounty.org. If you do not provide such documentation, you will be required to use your own accumulated leave time. 

Upon being cleared to return, you will need to furnish a note from your doctor clearing to return before you are able to report back to your workplace. 

Non-COVID-19 Related Medical Leaves - Essential Personnel 

If your primary care physician places you out on a leave of absence due to a personal medical condition for a non-COVID related illness, you must follow the county's existing leave policy. Please have your treating physician complete a Certification of Health Care Provider . Once you're cleared to return to work, have your doctor complete the RTW certificate clearing you to return to work without restrictions. You will then be scheduled to see the County Physician located at RWJ Occupational Health Facility at 2 Hamilton Health Place, Hamilton, NJ 08650.

 All medical documentation, including the Certification of Health Care Provider and RTW certificate, must be sent via e-mail to Alejandra M. Silva at amsilva@mercercounty.org

Seasonal/Temporary/Standby Employees 

We understand many of our seasonal/temporary/standby employees have been affected due to the county's indefinite closure. Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, it is unclear when we will be able to return to normal operations. In the meantime, there are resources available that may be able to assist you financially.
