Essex County COVID Call Center


Here at the Essex County Health Department the wellbeing of our employees and community is a top priority for us. We have set up a COVID-19 call center dedicating resources to testing the Essex County community and employees. So far, we have tested 3,500 employees in different departments such as the Sheriff’s office, Prosecutors office and Correction facilities. Our next step is to help improve the well-being of our employees. We are working on an employee wellness program that offers different relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation. This will be offered through various videos in an effort to continue socially distancing and keep everyone safe while providing wellness opportunities.
