Coronavirus Outbreak

Posted Thursday, March 12, 2020

The Workers' Compensation Commission has received numerous inquiries recently regarding contingency plans during the coronavirus outbreak. We are closely monitoring the situation and will be following any guidance or directives given to us by the Governor's Office and/or the Department of Administrative Services.

The Commission is an agency of the executive branch and as such, until directed otherwise, will continue to operate normally and hearings will go on as scheduled. If any party to a claim or member of the public has a concern about appearing for a hearing, filing documents, or other interactions which require their appearance at a district office, they are encouraged to contact the district office. Commissioners and staff will do their best to accommodate such concerns.

This is obviously a very fluid situation. Any directed changes to Commission policy will be posted to the website and forwarded to all district offices for distribution immediately upon receipt. For additional information you are urged to please visit
