This Alert is for the employers with office worksites in Los Angeles County. Effective May 6, 2021, the Los Angeles County Department of Public has issued its “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” entitled the “Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19” order. And if you think the name is long, wait until you see the order!
All office-based work sites must post and comply with Appendix D, which is comprised of another 9 pages of requirements for addressing safety of employees as well as the public while ensuring and balancing proper physical distancing and equitable access to services. (You can also find Appendices A through CC on the LA County Department of Health Re-opening page. Most of the Appendices cover a different industry or work location, including retail, restaurants, outdoor live events (sporting events, concerts, etc.), indoor live events, music/film/television production, hotels and lodging, gyms, museums, movie theaters, personal care businesses and more.)
Below are some key takeaways for employers operating office work sites:
While this information is current as of the issuance of this Alert, things can change rapidly if Los Angeles experiences another wave or leaves the yellow tier. For the most current orders and information, you can visit the LA County Department of Health Reopening page.
