Good Morning Brothers and Sisters,
With in part of the new Contra Costa County mandate of face coverings coming into affect on Wednesday the 22nd the company will be adding an additional $24 on out paychecks for us to buy face coverings. This will show up on your check just like the old boot allowance did back in the day. This decision has been made due to the companies orders of mask that have been delayed. The orders have been pushed back by CCHealth  for First Responders and the Medical field .
