  • As a condition of continued employment, MoDOT may require employees to take a PCR (active infection) COVID-19 test during the pandemic in an effort to slow or stop the spread of the virus at work. MoDOT will pay for all expenses associated with any required COVID-19 test(s). 
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, MoDOT strictly enforces social distancing, face covering, and other safety requirements to ensure the health and safety of our employees and those we serve.
