Before reopening, all facilities must:

  • Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific Social Distancing Protocol 
  • The Social Distancing Protocol must explain how the business is achieving the following, as applicable:
  • Limiting the number of people who can enter into the facility and work areas at any one time to ensure that people in the facility and work areas can easily maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another at all times, except as required to complete the Essential Business activity;
  • Where lines may form at a facility, marking six-foot increments at a minimum, establishing where individuals should stand to maintain adequate social distancing;
  • Providing hand sanitizer, soap and water, or effective disinfectant at or near the entrance of the facility and in other appropriate areas for use by the public and employees, and in locations where there is high-frequency employee interaction with members of the public (e.g. cashiers);
  • Providing for contactless payment systems or, if not feasible to do so, then providing for disinfecting of all payment portals, pens, and styluses after each use;
  • Regularly cleaning and disinfecting other high-touch surfaces;
  • Posting a sign at the entrance of the facility and work area informing all employees and customers that they should: avoid entering the facility if they have a cough or fever; maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another; sneeze and cough into one’s elbow; not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact; and
  • Adhering to additional social distancing guidance recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/guidance-business-response.html.

In addition, business owners should:

  • 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
  • Implement individual control measures and screenings
  • Implement disinfecting protocols

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, to prevent further infection in your workplace. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.

Additional Guidance from California Department of Public Health  

  • The guidance for family friendly practices for employers provides guidelines for family-friendly practices to keep employees safe and be responsive to their needs in order to ensure continued productivity. As workplaces reopen, employees will require both child care supports and workplace flexibility. Work-life balance policies will become even more important and continued investment in family-friendly workplace policies by employers is critical.
  • The support for working families guidance provides information to help you locate child care, find assistance to pay for child care, and connect you to additional supports for your family. As stay-at-home orders are lifted for additional industries to promote California’s economic recovery, the need for child care and other supports for working families increases.

Businesses Allowed to Reopen

  • Any business or government entity actively engaging in business operations must prepare and post a “Social Distancing Protocol” for each of their facilities in the County frequented by the public or employees.
  • The Protocol must be posted at or near the entrance of the relevant facility and shall be easily viewable by the public and employees. It shows customers and employees that you’ve reduced the risk and are open for business.
  • A copy of the Social Distancing Protocol must also be provided to each employee performing work at the facility or construction site.
