COVID-19 Information for WASD Employees

The health and wellbeing of our approximately 2,800 employees is of the highest priority to the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD). To ensure that employees continue to be adequately protected while maintaining Department function, WASD staff policies and procedures pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic align closely with those of the Miami-Dade County Human Resources Department (HRD).

This comprehensive set of guidelines are based on the policies put forth by HRD, as well as memos provided by HRD and the Mayor’s office. In addition to County policies, departments have been instructed to determine their own rulesets for certain scenarios. Please find below WASD policies for 2021 laid out as frequently asked questions.

As the pandemic evolves, so do the policies. Should HRD publish updated County policies that conflict with WASD policies, the County policies will be followed.
