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
