Before Reopening, All Facilities Must

  1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan
  2. Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them
  3. Implement individual control measures and screenings
  4. Implement disinfecting protocols
  5. Implement physical distancing guidelines
  6. Complete your industry-specific checklist (below) and post a copy publicly, for customers and employees

As we work to lessen the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, it is critical that employees needing to self-isolate because of COVID-19 are encouraged to stay at home, with sick leave policies to support that. Please help us prevent further infection in your workplace. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.
