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.
