Governor Brown has tasked the Reopening Advisory Team with developing a report on reopening remaining state government offices to the public. The Team focused on public access, workforce re-entry to state office buildings, discussions on hybrid telecommuting, current in-office staff, information technology needs, workspace, facilities, parking, human resource policies and much more.
Final report (released 7/6/21)
Frequently asked questions
The Reopening Advisory Team will submit a report focusing on equity and supporting policies to all state agencies consistent with labor agreements and the Governor's Office policy around:
- Employee connection and morale
- Performance management
- In-state remote work
- Out-of-state remote work
- Workplace Safety
- Public access
Probably not. The pandemic has provided the state opportunity to see that remote work can be an option for employees. The Advisory team is basing the report on the assumption that the state will embrace the hybrid workplace model (wherever possible), and offer suggestions for agencies to reopen based on business need and ability for remote work.
The target date to reopen remaining state offices to the public September 1, 2021.
This topic is being discussed by the Advisory Team.
Agencies will be working on implementation plans in July and August and begin implementing guidance in September 2021 as remaining state offices reopen to the public.
