Ensuring a safe workplace is crucial to preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Public Health Branch has provided tools to support workplaces in creating a safe environment. California enacted legislation AB 685 to put infection prevention regulations in place related to COVID-19. This involves informing the Public Health Branch when 3 or more positive cases occur within a 14-day period. Additional information can be found via the resources below.
