Our Dos and Don’ts start with a bit of a bummer…because of a rise in COVID-19 cases in our jurisdictions, don’t plan on attending any in-person company volunteer events – they have been canceled. Do continue to make a positive difference in our communities by donating during the Employee Giving Campaign or joining a virtual volunteer event. You can find more information on the Powering Communities website.
If you’re planning an in-person meeting, do know that the capacity information for any meeting rooms listed in Outlook has been reduced anywhere from 30 percent to 50 percent to allow for six feet of physical distance between attendees. Don’t plan any in-person meetings larger than 10 people based on CDC guidance. (A limited number of pre-approved training sessions may include more than 10 people. HR and safety will be involved to ensure safe occupancy levels and COVID-19 PPE is used).Chairs will be removed in larger meeting rooms, while some chairs in smaller rooms will be marked with an X to keep people apart. For your safety and the safety of your colleagues, do follow the capacity limitations. Also, do remember that masks are required at all times (even when social distancing) in conference rooms.
A few employees have asked whether wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 might result in unsafe oxygen or carbon dioxide levels. OSHA has recently added an FAQ to its website to clear up any misinformation on this topic. The full text can be found here. In summary, OSHA states that medical masks, including surgical masks, don’t compromise oxygen levels or cause carbon dioxide buildup in work settings. They are designed to be breathed through and do protect you against respiratory droplets, which are typically much larger than tiny carbon dioxide particles you breathe out. Most carbon dioxide particles will either go through the mask or escape along the mask's loose-fitting perimeter. Do remember that you can take a break from the mask, but only when you are working alone and at least six feet away from others.
