Additionally, JEA is instituting the following measures effective Monday, March 16:

  • Requiring employees who've recently traveled to high-risk countries as defined by the CDC or been on a cruise ship to self-quarantine for the recommended 14-day incubation period upon return to the U.S.
  • Ensuring employees who are able to work from home get the tools they need to do so
  • Suspending all non-essential travel, internal meetings and professional development classes to reduce transmission risks within and beyond our facilities
  • Discontinuing home water and energy audits and other activities that require JEA employees to enter a customer's home
