By Emergency Declaration, all persons outside of their homes within the City of Hallandale Beach are required to wear cloth masks or other face coverings consistent with the current CDC and Florida Department of Health guidelines for personal protective equipment. For purposes of this Order, persons should not utilize N95 rated masks unless engaged in providing health care, police, fire, or emergency management services or other persons engaged in life/safety activities. Broward County Emergency Order also requires masks for essential businesses.  Masks should adhere to the CDC guidance available here. 

By City of Hallandale Beach Policy, issued 01/26/21:

Effective immediately, I am requiring the wearing of masks by all employees that are onsite at any City facility or are doing any City business/ or work activities as a part of their work duties. Whether a team member is in the office, or out on the road doing business for the City, facial coverings must be worn at all times by all staff with the following exceptions:

1. If you are alone in your own personal office, and there is no risk of any other team members going in or out of your office. If anyone can enter or leave your office during the course of the workday, then you must wear your facial covering at all times.

2. If you are in your personal office during the workday and need to leave it for whatever reason, if no person is outside of it, or in a common area, you do not have to wear your mask. If, however, there are others in the common area outside of your office, and you need to leave your office, you must wear your facial covering (e.g., you are working at night or on the weekend and there is absolutely no one else around).

3. If you are in a City vehicle by yourself, you do not have to wear a mask. However, the moment you leave that vehicle on any City related activity or business, you must always wear your facial covering. Furthermore, if there is anyone in the City vehicle with you, facial coverings must be worn at all times.

4. People are not required to wear a facial covering for the shortest practical period of time that the person’s activity makes wearing a facial covering impossible (such as eating, drinking).

5. A team member with a stated disability or medical condition (as reported to Human Resources) that prevents the person from wearing a facial covering or causes a person to be unable to remove a facial covering without assistance, should not wear a facial covering.

Even when facial coverings are worn, Social Distancing of at least six (6) feet should be maintained to the maximum extent possible.

COVID Testing

aetna

 

When COVID-19 escalated in the United States, Aetna, a CVS Health Company, was among the first in the industry to implement short-term crisis policy changes to support you and your workforce. As we shift to recovery planning, some of these policies will remain, while others will end.

The benefit liberalizations chart below applies to Aetna insured customers and summarizes our updated policy changes and effective dates. We are closely monitoring the progress of the pandemic, federal and state policies and the associated impact on our members, customers and providers. We’ll continue to adjust our policies, as appropriate, to ensure access to care.

In addition to supporting members’ access to needed care, we continue to focus on protecting patient access to medication and have extended the following actions:

  • Waiving early refill limits on 30-day prescription maintenance medications for all members with pharmacy benefits administered through CVS Caremark.

  • Continuing to encourage members to take advantage of plan benefits for 90-day maintenance medication prescriptions.


For additional COVID-19-related resources, please review our employer and producers resources page or member FAQs or contact your account representative.


COHB is happy to announce the launch of the Aetna Microsite. Access to the Aetna Microsite allows employees to have "Care anywhere" and provides convenient connections to your best health
