Guidance & Shared Best Practices:

If you are providing services under The Governor’s guidance language, you are required to develop a COVID-19 Business Safety Plan that implements CDC and OSHA guidelines for social distancing and sanitation. 



To protect workers from coronavirus, employers are required to:

  • Maintain social distancing (keep workers at least six feet apart) or use effective engineering/ administrative controls;
  • Ensure adequate hand washing facilities and frequent employee hand washing;
  • Increase regular cleaning and sanitizing of common-touch surfaces;
  • Make sure sick employees stay home (or are isolated) or go home, and that there are procedures for workers to report a suspected or confirmed coronavirus case; and
  • Educate workers in the language they understand best about coronavirus and how to prevent transmission

Essential businesses are still required to comply with the state’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy proclamation. Detailed requirements and practices that support the above worker protections for agriculture operations can be found online at the state Department of Labor & Industries website and in these L&I fact sheets:
