Good COVID Practices

 
Follow face mask rules for the public.
The purpose of continued masking is to prevent transmission of the virus particularly to persons with higher risk of infection (e.g., unvaccinated or immunocompromised persons), and to persons with prolonged, cumulative exposures (e.g., workers).
Wear a mask while indoors or while attending a public outdoor event.
Masks may be removed temporarily for eating, drinking or hygenic reasons, but are otherwise recommended.
Please note that places serving food and beverages to customers indoors are higher-risk settings for transmission of COVID-19.
Check with your destination to review their policies.
Observe any signs posted at the entry to a business and follow the rules.
Businesses will explain their COVID-19 policies, including mask requirements for their premises.
Stay home if you feel sick or are symptomatic.
Get vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and the best way to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks in the workplace and in the community. COVID-19 vaccine is widely available in every community
Bring vaccination to the workplace.
Consider offering a vaccination clinic at your workplace to make it more convenient for your employees to get vaccinated, as well as opportunities to support and incentivize your employees to get vaccinated or to make it easier to get vaccinated, such as offering rewards like paid time off or cash bonus payments, and/or policies that require employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or that offer more flexibility for employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Follow face mask rules for employees.
Actively encourage and support symptomatic, infected, or exposed employees in staying home.
Make sure employees know that they may not come to work if sick, or if they are under isolation or quarantine orders, and continue to educate employees about what to do if they are sick.
Increase ventilation.
Effective ventilation is one of the most important ways to control small aerosol transmission. Open windows if weather permits, and make sure your building’s HVAC system is in correct working order.
Support hand hygiene.
Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds each time and encourage others to do the same.
Protect friends, family members, and coworkers who are at higher risk of severe illness.
Implement safety modifications that minimize unnecessary contact and exposure.
