CDFA has updated their list of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) vendors, which was created to connect industry growers, packers, storage facilities, and other agricultural entities with suppliers. To the extent they can, CDFA is verifying the vendor on a surface level. However, because CDFA cannot fully vet the vendors, the buyer has an obligation to do their own vetting.

California employers are required to establish and implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) to protect employees from all worksite hazards, including infectious diseases. Cal/OSHA has now released guidance for agricultural employers on how to update their IIPPs to include preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. This guidance does not introduce any new legal obligations, but because COVID-19 is widespread in the community, most California workplaces must consider the disease a workplace hazard.
