  • Limit or discourage in-person meetings
  • Avoid meetings or groupings of more than 10 employees, clients or customers
  • Implement symptom monitoring protocols such as temperature checks
  • Eliminate, or regularly clean and disinfect, any items in common spaces
  • Require employees with symptoms to stay home
  • Accommodate employees who are vulnerable individuals
  • Provide flexible options for employees with child or elder-care obligations
  • Provide appropriate PPE, like gloves, masks, or face coverings
  • Discourage the use of shared spaces such as breakrooms and meeting rooms
