May 15, 2020


County employees have stepped up in ways large and small to aid in the community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have worked from home, others from a remote location. All are doing what’s asked of them in the face of an unprecedented crisis.

As employees begin returning to their workplaces, eScoop will get back to its twice-monthly publishing schedule, sharing the information you need. But for this issue, and future ones, we’ll also continue to share the stories of our County heroes.

Tell us who you think they are.

County playing lead role in food distribution efforts

Brandon Milligan starts his day at the Pima County Jail.

He isn't in trouble with the law. The Library employee instead is picking up hundreds of surplus meals – sandwich, fruit, milk – loading them onto a Pima County Library van and hauling the boxes of food to the Casa Maria Soup Kitchen for distribution. Seven days a week. No days off. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began.



Pivoting in a pinch: Employees aid volunteer efforts

As tens of thousands of Pima County residents hunkered down at home over the past several weeks to stop the spread of Coronavirus, hundreds of volunteers sprang into action, including more than 100 County employees.

Logistics team on front lines of pandemic

When the novel Coronavirus reached Pima County earlier this year, it became immediately apparent that personal protective equipment, medical supplies and many other items essential in the battle against the pandemic were needed. Unfortunately, these items were in high demand across the world with only limited supplies available.

County’s Return to Work Protocols

The County Administrator has addressed ongoing questions concerning the County’s return-to-work protocols. The COVID-19 Employee Resources website has his memo on the subject as well as a revised telecommuting attestation form, medical attestation form and updated Return to Work FAQs.
