Alameda County Shelter in Place Order & Face Coverings Order
Employer has read the Alameda County Shelter in Place Order to determine if the business is allowed to reopen.
Employer has read the Alameda County Face Coverings Order and is complying with and implementing measures identified in the Order.
Individual Control Measures and Screenings
☐ Employees must be provided with all required protective equipment (i.e. face coverings) and the employer ensures this equipment is worn properly at all times.
☐ Face coverings are required when employees are in the vicinity of others. Face coverings are not shared at this worksite.
☐ Employees take reasonable measures to communicate with the public that they are required to wear face coverings.
*Please note that children 12 years old or younger and those who cannot wear one because of medical reasons are exempt from wearing a face covering and will be asked to schedule a massage when it is safe to do so without a mask
Employees who are sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 are directed to stay home and follow the Alameda County Public Health Department’s Criteria for Returning to Work after Isolation or Quarantine guidelines.
*Please note that employees who self-quarantine and who are not ill do not need a doctor’s note to return to work after staying home for 14 days. Requiring employees to obtain a doctor’s note is impacting the medical system and preventing doctors from seeing patients who are ill. If any employee has been isolated because they were diagnosed with COVID-19, they may return to work once they meet the criteria described in ACPHD’s return to work policy. Repeat testing for COVID-19 is not required before an employee can return to work.
Types of protective equipment provided to employees at this worksite location include: Face masks and shields, disposable gloves, sanitizers
Additional control measure you are implementing at this worksite include: We have removed chairs with fabric cushions, pillows, heating pads and fleece covers. All surfaces and chairs the client will use are non porous and able to be easily and quickly sanitized. We have placed HEPA13/Charcoal air purifiers. We have established a protocol for the client and therapist to follow that includes washing before and after, avoids face touching by the client and a request that the client be mindful and tell the therapist if they touch the mask or their face so the therapist can sanitize the hands before massaging them.
