If I return to the office, what safety guidelines do I need to follow so I can keep myself and others safe?

  1. Follow the mask requirements of the CDC, state, and local governments where your office is located.
  2. Stay home if you have felt sick within the last seventy-two hours or go home if you start to feel sick.
  3. Maintain social distancing practices in the workplace, when possible.
  4. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least twenty seconds. When soap and water are not immediately available, use hand sanitizer.
  5. Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing.
  6. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  7. Replace handshakes with head nods and waves.
  8. Avoid using other employees’ phones, desks, offices or other work tools and equipment. If you are sharing a workspace, equipment, tools, etc., be sure to clean everything properly before and after you are done working and follow the cleaning product instructions.
  9. Discourage visitors and clients from coming into the office unless it is necessary.
  10. Be kind. This is a stressful time for everyone, and an extra bit of kindness right now can go a long way.
