COVID-19 Employee Health & Safety Protocols

Updated 06/06/2022

Employee Health Protocols

All staff are expected to follow Public Health Guidelines and SLOCOE protocols as they continue to change over the course of the pandemic.

Perform a daily self-assessment before you come to work. Employees experiencing symptoms related to COVID, or other illness, should remain home, communicate with their supervisor and/or Human Resources, and test for COVID/contact healthcare provider for guidance.

 

  • According to the CA Department of Public Health, it is strongly recommended that all persons, regardless of vaccination status, mask in indoor public settings and businesses. After March 11, 2022, the universal masking requirement for K-12 and Childcare settings has been terminated.
  • SLOCOE continues to follow Cal OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) in the workplace.
  • SLOCOE continues to verify vaccine status of all workers, pursuant to CDPH requirements. Unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated workers are required to undergo diagnostic screening testing at least once weekly.
  • Employees are also advised to:
    • Practice regular hand washing – 20 seconds – when entering the building, regularly throughout the day, and before exiting.
    • Utilize the COVID-19 materials in your department or COVID-19 cart.
    • Maintain clutter free surfaces and workstations for efficient and regular cleaning and disinfecting.
    • Check in at the COVID-19 cart when entering the worksite for updates and announcements

FAQ

What about symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test?

Answer: In the event that a staff member exhibits symptoms, has potential exposure, and/or has tested positive for COVID-19, SLOCOE will work with Public Health to implement all necessary communication and follow up to support contact tracing and health and safety of staff. Anyone may call SLO County Public Health if a suspected exposure has occurred.
