The Safer at Work and in the Community Health Officer Order requires that all businesses adhere to posted public health protocols including those related to social distancing and other industry specific protocols which can be found at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/.
In addition, all businesses are required to report to public health if they identify more than 3 cases of COVID-19 in the workplace within a span of 14 days. This cluster of cases must be reported to either of the following phone numbers: 888.397.3993 or 213.240.7821. Public Health will in turn initiate a cluster response which includes providing infection control guidance and recommendations, technical support and site specific control measures. A public health case manager will also be assigned to the cluster investigation to help guide the facility in its response.
Public Health offers a variety of other resources available at the link noted above such as posters for customers outlining physical distancing and infection control mandates, guidance on how to respond to a single case of COVID in the workplace, and how to do employee or visitor screenings prior to entry to the worksite.
Information regarding how to deal with non-compliant customers will be shared once it becomes available.
