Physical/Social Distancing Tips in the Workplace:
Practice social distancing without exception, even amongst fellow co-workers. Apply universal precautions and assume everyone an employee may come in contact with has the potential to be infected, even if they do not have symptoms. Workstations should be set up to include appropriate distancing or space between employees. There should be at least 6-feet between employees and those they are serving.
Face Coverings & Masks:
In public settings where other physical/social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, and especially in geographic areas of significant community-based transmission, CDC advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
Health Systems Screening:
Prior to Entry, all employees and visitors are required to conduct a health check by the Sacramento County Order dated May 1, 2020.
