California Releases New COVID-19 Employer Playbook for Safe Reopening

As California businesses begin reopening, the State has released the COVID-19 Employer Playbook for a Safe Reopening, which provides guidance for employers to help them plan and prepare for reopening their business and to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers.

The guidance and links in each section are provided to give employers the tools they need to open safely and mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. Topics addressed in the playbook include:

  • How to open safely, including industry-specific guidance and checklists
  • What to do if there is a case of COVID-19 in the workplace, e.g. preparedness, communication, preventing further spread, returning to work, reporting
  • Enforcement and compliance
  • Worker education
  • Resources, including employer resource links
