If you are working through this pandemic we ask that you work safe, follow

*Protocols for all Businesses (including construction) have a Social
Distancing Protocol, which must be posted and distributed to all employees
by 11:59 p.m. on April 2, 2020. *A model social distancing protocol is
attached to each County’s order. The model protocols appear to focus on
retail establishments, such as grocery stores. However, the order requires
that each essential business (which would include each construction
employer) post a social distancing protocol which explains how the business
will achieve the following:

1. Limiting the number of people who can enter into the facility at
any one time to ensure that people in the facility can easily maintain
a minimum six-foot distance from one another at all times,
except as required to complete the Essential Business activity.
2. Where lines may form at a facility, marking six-foot increments at
a minimum, establishing where individuals should stand to maintain adequate
social distancing.
3 .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);
2. Providing for contactless payment systems or, if not feasible to do
so, the providing for disinfecting all payment portals, pens, and
styluses after each use.

Regularly disinfecting other high touch surfaces.

1. Posting a sign at the entrance of the facility 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; and not shake hands or
engage in any unnecessary physical contact.
2. Any additional social distancing measures being implemented (see
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance at:
