Ensuring the health and safety of children, teachers, staff, and all of their families is the top priority. It’s recommended that schools develop a reopening plan that meets the requirements set forth by California Department of Public Health and Tulare County Public Health. Prior to applying for a waiver, the school superintendent or equivalent must consult with labor, parent, and community organizations to develop and publish a reopening plan.
Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency has created a reopening your business packet complete with submission forms, posters and guidelines.
Businesses looking to reopen are encouraged to review the latest industry guidance documents that are relevant to your workplace, prepare a plan based on the guidance for your industry, and put it into action prior to reopening.
To ensure the safety of our community and to help navigate the new normal, Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency has created this playbook. This comprehensive guide includes many of the recommendations and developed guidelines from the CDC and other federal, state, and local agencies. This resource will act as a living document, which we will update as this fluid situation changes.
On May 8, 2020 State officials will begin modifying the Stay at Home Order and released industry guidance for busineeses to begin reopening with modifications that reduce risk and establish a safer environment for workers and customers. To view the latest industry guidance as California moves through phases of reopening visit the California Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response website – Resilience Roadmap.
Every business should take steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and create a safer environment for workers and customers. Businesses may use effective alternative or innovative methods to build upon the guidelines. Review industry sector guidance that is relevant to your workplace, prepare a plan based on the guidance for your industry, and put it into action.
