Provide (at no cost to employees) and require the wearing of personal protective equipment (PPE),
such as gloves, goggles, face shields and facemasks as appropriate or required for the work activity
being performed. Cloth face coverings must be worn by every employee not working alone on the job
site unless their exposure dictates a higher level of protection under L&I safety and health rules and
guidance. Refer to Washington Coronavirus Hazard Considerations for Employers (except COVID-19 care
in hospitals and clinics) Face Coverings, Masks, and Respirator Choices for additional details. Cloth face
coverings are described in the Department of Health guidance.
Beginning June 8, all employees will be required to wear a cloth facial covering, with the following
exceptions: when working alone in an oce, vehicle, or at a job site; if the individual is deaf or hard of
hearing, or is communicating with someone who relies on language cues such as facial markers and
expression and mouth movements as a part of communication; if the individual has a medical condition
or disability that makes wearing a facial covering inappropriate; or when the job has no in-person
interaction. Employers must provide cloth facial coverings to employees, unless their exposure dictates
a higher level of protection under the Department of Labor and Industries’ safety and health rules and
guidance. Refer to Coronavirus Facial Covering and Mask Requirements for additional details. Employees
may choose to wear their own coverings at work, provided it meets the minimum requirements.

requirements, you agree that you will do the following:
Limit in-person gatherings as much as possible and use tele- or video-conferencing whenever possible.
Essential in-person gatherings (e.g. meetings) should be held in open, well-ventilated spaces with
appropriate social distancing among participants.
Establish designated areas for pick-ups and deliveries, limiting contact to the extent possible.
List common situations that may not allow for 6 ft. of distance between individuals. What measures will
you implement to ensure the safety of your employees in such situations?
How you will manage engagement with customers and visitors on these requirements (as applicable)?
How you will manage industry-specic physical social distancing (e.g., shift changes, lunch breaks)
