The unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in significant changes to our communities, workplaces and services. Now, more than ever, Los Angeles County residents are relying on government agencies to provide essential services and the resources they need to keep their families and loved ones safe.
Throughout the pandemic, we have seen County employees rise to the moment to serve the 10 million residents in their care. Countless individuals have taken on new roles in their service areas, providing vital health, emergency planning and public safety services when we need them the most. Thousands of employees have also stepped out of their regular roles to serve as Disaster Service Workers in order to fill immediate emergency needs in our communities.
The County’s “Essential Jobs in 60 Seconds” video series provides a glimpse into the impact of these civil servants in both times of crisis and every day. A look into the various activities of our fearless County Disaster Service Workers can also be seen at https://www.facebook.com/LACountyHR.
From supporting community health centers to distributing meals; conducting homeless outreach to staffing emergency shelters; providing interactive online activities to connecting individuals to vital resources – the County of Los Angeles’s workforce remains committed to exceptional public service despite the challenges brought by COVID-19.
