On December 30, 2021, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updated its guidance on isolation and quarantine recommendations for COVID 19. The CDPH guidance aligns with timeframe recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Please check with your county health department to see if your local rules are different. This Safety Communication provides details on the update from CDPH, as well as on the period of time before an employee can return to work after close contact or COVID 19 infection.
We will continue to keep you abreast of any new developments. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

The CDC released a set of documents designed to provide guidance on how child care centers, schools, workplaces and other establishments can begin the process of reopening in the face of Coronavirus. It is important to check with state and local health officials and other partners to determine the most appropriate actions while adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community.
The National Clearinghouse creates training tools to aid in the development of awareness-level courses or other awareness-level materials. These tools provide health and safety guidance to workers who work in industries with the potential for exposure to COVID-19.
Cal/OSHA has unveiled two training modules for COVID-19. They are located at https://trainingacademy.dir.ca.gov/page/on-demand-training-covid19.
The Employers course is designed for managers, supervisors, foremen, lead persons, and other people in charge of overseeing other workers or the health and safety of workers. The Workers course is designed for workers who do not fill any kind of supervisory or lead role. The first 17 minutes of the Employer training is identical to the Worker Training, so managers, supervisors, etc. do not need to do both trainings.
NOTE: Users who complete these online courses will earn certificates of completion. Completion of this training, alone, does not constitute compliance with an employer’s legal obligations to comply with safety and health requirements under California law. The training courses are designed to be used as part of an employer’s safety program and are not complete trainings on their own. For training to be effective, employers must train their workers on information and procedures specific to their own workplaces. To take a course, users must register by providing their name and email address. Any personal information provided by users will be used by this training environment solely to track course progress and award the certificate upon completion.
