COVID-19 Resources

UPDATE: Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have made the following changes to our operations in order to protect the health and safety of you, our staff and our community.

IHSS Providers: If you are a current IHSS Provider in Imperial County and have questions regarding payroll, provider enrollment, or sick time, please contact the Provider Management Team at 760-337-3084.

 

IHSS Recipients/Consumers: If you have a loss of a provider due COVID-19 related reasons, please contact your IHSS Social Worker. As an IHSS recipient, you may qualify for a short-term emergency backup provider to be dispatched based on your available authorized IHSS hours.
