LACCD EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTERSAFETY ADVISORY: ESSENTIAL WORKER SOCIAL DISTANCING

April 17, 2020

INTRODUCTION

In order to further reduce the spread of COVID-19 among the Los Angeles Community District’s facilities and colleges, including satellite campus facilities and the District’s Educational Services Center, the District is enforcing this Essential Worker Social Distancing Protocol, which is adopted from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Social Distancing Guide published April 6, 2020 online at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/GuidanceSocialDistancing.pdf

NOTE: ALL LACCD facilities and colleges are physically closed to all but essential workers. Protective cloth face coverings are mandatory upon entry for all personnel. Security personnel will be equipped to provide limited personal protective equipment (PPE) to essential workers, but are authorized to restrict access to District facilities and colleges in the event such equipment is not available or persons seeking entrance to any LACCD facility or college do not already have their own PPE. This Advisory is subject to change and revision as further information becomes available.
