SIA COVID-19 Essential Business & Employee Safety Protocols

SIA is committed to protecting the health and safety of our members, visitors, and employees.  Please review all information contained here to ensure your safety and prevent the spread of COVID-19.   

Workplace Safety:

Local County Public Health directs our workplace specific requirements, as guided by the State Public Health Guidance & Checklist (highlights herein) and CDC Recommendations and in accordance with Cal/OSHA Guidelines on Protecting Workers from COVID-19 (Injury & Illness Prevention Program).

Symptom Screening Prior to Entry:

Prior to Entry, all employees and visitors are required to conduct a health check by the Sacramento County Order.  If you are experiencing any symptoms according to the checklist, do not enter the building and contact your supervisor/manager immediately.  

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:
