As you are likely aware, the Covid-19 Delta variant is spiking across  Oregon. Our healthcare system is currently under significant stress. As a result, A recent Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Administrative Rule (333-019-1010) requires many CCS employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved medical or religious exception on file with us. A Federal rule is expected that will extend this requirement to all CCS employees.  If you have already received the vaccination(s), we thank you. Please be sure to forward a copy of your completed vaccination card to Human Resources at [email protected]. Information and forms for filing a medical or religious exception can be obtained by contacting Human Resources at [email protected].  


We know this is a difficult time for everyone. We are all being asked to lean into stopping the spread of this virus, going above and beyond our comfort levels, and many things are out of our control.  We want to take this opportunity to remind you of your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefit. Counselors at the EAP may be able to help you in these difficult times. For more information on the EAP, please reach out to your supervisor or Human Resources at [email protected].


We cannot thank you enough for everything you do every day to improve the lives of those we serve!  We appreciate you and all the steps you take each day to keep yourselves and the people we serve happy, healthy, and productive.
