We received approval from the County Manager to extend COVID PREMIUM Pay through the end of Phase 2, which has been extended to August 7. The other specifics remain in place from the original message – for patient facing work by Paramedics, EMTs and Supervisors, and the pay premium is strictly applied to hours worked in the field. The payment will be retroactive to July 1 and paid on regular paydays starting this Friday.
Please note that this is the extent to which Medic is funded and approved to provide premium pay.
I am grateful to each of you for your ongoing commitment to this Agency and the community we serve, as well as to Mecklenburg County for their unwavering support and appreciation for all that you do.
