Default I'm guessing that all Parole Offices are closed?

Got a call from Mr's PO last week.....no reporting. I'm venturing a guess that that goes for all PO Offices You wouldn't know that by looking at KYDOC's webpage or their page for Probation & Parole.

As a matter of fact, the only reference I can find to Covid-19 is the following (old news):

**In an abundance of caution, we have temporarily suspended visitation at all prisons until further notice. This step was taken to protect our inmates, their loved ones, and our staff due to the public health concerns surrounding the coronavirus or COVID-19. For accurate, up-to-date information on COVID-19, go to www.kycovid19.ky.gov.**

I'm pretty sure they are, though not specifically named, but they are state employees. Most state employee offices now have about 80% working from home.


Staffing for state agencies
Friday, the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet issued a memo with guidance to constitutional officers, cabinet secretaries, agency heads and human resources administrators to reduce on-site staffing by up to 50% during the state of emergency for employees with duties that can be performed remotely. For job functions that cannot be performed remotely, the personnel department encouraged agency leaders to equip unused office space to ensure the spacing needed to achieve social distancing.

Gov. Beshear said the state will be aggressive in pursuing telecommuting to thin out the number of people in buildings and allow for social distancing.

The memo from Personnel Secretary Gerina D. Whethers directed agencies to maintain essential services, whether it is on-site or through telecommuting, and dictated work assignments be fair and equitable while allowing those who fall within higher risk groups, those over 60 and who have chronic medical conditions, be considered for longer periods of telecommuting if requested.

Whethers directed staff to “continue to take appropriate steps to routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, copiers, elevator buttons, countertops, and doorknobs.” State personnel have worked tirelessly to clean and disinfect the Capitol and other buildings.

State agencies are to begin reducing staff on Monday, March 16, but no later than Friday, March 20.
