The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, clients, and attendees is paramount.
Nevada Preservation has a Universal Masking Policy for all who work for or interact with our organization.
April 30, 2020
This company policy includes the measures we are actively taking to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. Nevada Preservation is committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace for all employees, volunteers, clients, and attendees. It is important that we all respond responsibly and transparently to these health precautions.
This Coronavirus policy applies to all of our employees, volunteers, and board members who work in our offices or off-site at an event, client site, or historic site. It also applies to clients, attendees, vendors, and others who interact with Nevada Preservation staff, volunteers, or board members.
Responsibilities and Policy Elements
Below, we outline the actions we will require that employees, volunteers, board members, clients, attendees, vendors and others who interact with Nevada Preservation take to protect the same groups from a potential Coronavirus infection.
Social Distancing Policy
- Our offices will remain closed to regular business. Employees may use the office space individually and in coordination with other staff members.
- Social distancing means avoiding large gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others.
- Increased physical space between employees, volunteers, board members, clients, attendees, vendors, and others by avoiding hugging and handshakes.
- Services will be delivered remotely. Any in person services will be solely at the discretion of Nevada Preservation.
- Any events (e.g. tours, talks) will be held outdoors and rely upon strict social distancing.
Respiratory Etiquette and Hand Hygiene Policy for Employees and all who Interact with Nevada Preservation Staff
- Mandatory mask wearing for the duration of any event, meeting, or other interaction with Nevada Preservation staff.
- Mandatory temperature check for all staff, volunteers, and attendees to any event or group meeting.
- Place alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol in multiple locations to encourage hand hygiene.
- Provide soap and water in the workplace. If hands are visibly soiled, soap and water should be chosen over hand sanitizer.
Reduce Transmission Among Employees (after the office is open for regular business)
- Each working day all employees will have their temperature taken upon arrival to work.
- Mandatory masks for all employees
- Employees who have symptoms (i.e. fever, cough, anosmia, GI symptoms, or shortness of breath) should notify their supervisor and stay home.
- If an employee is confirmed to have COVID-19 infection, employers should inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The fellow employees should then self-monitor for symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath).
- Sick employees should not return to work until the criteria to discontinue home isolation are met in consultation with their doctor and state and local health departments.
- Employees who are well but have a sick family member at home with COVID-19 should notify their supervisor and stay home until they are cleared by their doctor and state/local health department to return to work.
