Social Distancing in Offices, Reception Areas, and Other Work Settings

As we all continue to respond to the changing world which COVID-19 has created, it is important your employees and Guests understand how to implement social distancing.

These are steps that employees can use to establish social distancing in their workspaces.

Keep in mind that social distancing guidelines are based on a 6-foot separation of individuals, but physical barriers are also appropriate.

  • 1. Consider the physical barriers which are in placed such as doorways or cubicle walls
  • 2. Consider establishing temporary barriers such as rolling whiteboards, sealing openings between cubicles
  • 3. Where there are no barriers, but the appropriate distance exists, consider placing a visual reminder to maintain social distance
  • 4. In reception areas, limit the number of seats. Organize seats in such a manner so there is at least 6-feet between seats
  • 5. Increase distance in waiting lines. Using tape on the ground to indicate “line starts here” concept and placing tape marker at 6-feet intervals
  • 6. Use phones, videos, or video conferencing to reduce the need for meetings and other close personal contact
