1.5 minute read

Here are some best practices that can be followed to help keep everyone safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.

  • Wear a mask in public and stay six feet apart from others if possible. That includes in the workplace, while commuting, etc. If you must interact with others, limit the length of the interaction if possible.
  • Monitor your own health and watch for symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
  • If you have symptoms, test positive for COVID-19, have a sick family member, or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, notify your supervisor and follow CDC-recommended precautions.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash your hands, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Remember to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Follow up by washing your hands or use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid using or sharing coworker’s work equipment if you can. This includes phones, pens, desks, etc. If you must share, clean and disinfect between each use.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects including doorknobs, workstations, keyboards, telephones, etc.

Maintaining safe practices while returning to work can help operations continue to run smoothly. Everyone should do their part to help limit the spread.
