MCAO Staff:
I know there are a lot of unknowns right now. However, please know that we have been working throughout the weekend to establish a plan for moving forward. A detailed email tomorrow will be forthcoming with more details about teleworking and handling cases but I wanted to send something tonight so that employees know we are working on this issue and are cognizant of the angst everyone is feeling. As an agency of Maricopa County, we must adhere to county policies as it relates to leave, so if you are unable to be at work tomorrow, please follow standard protocols for leave. The Board of Supervisors is having an emergency meeting tomorrow morning and we hope to provide more direction at the conclusion of that meeting. We are also aware that Superior Court has cancelled jury selection for tomorrow. Please address this on a case by case basis and we will provide additional guidance tomorrow. Trials that are in progress are expected to continue tomorrow. Thank you, Allister
