How does COVID-19 affect my GA/GR?
Counties still make their own rules about their GA/GR programs. You should have “good cause” due to COVID-19 for not complying with job search or work-related requirements if you are deemed employable. If the county does not have job search or job training, you should not be limited to three months of GA/GR until the county starts having job search or job training again. The county should also allow you to apply online or by telephone to avoid in-person contact, especially if you cannot go to the county office because you are sick, quarantined, vulnerable to COVID-19 or have another disability that prevents you from going to the welfare department office.
