Social Distancing

Establish social distancing in your workplace. Keep in mind that social distancing guidelines are based on a 6-foot separation of individuals, but other measures are also appropriate.


  • Minimizing contact among workers, clients, and customers by replacing face-to-face meetings with virtual communications and implementing telework if feasible.
  • Limit meetings to no more than 10 individuals, provided appropriate spacing is possible.
  • Hold meetings in large spaces where people can spread out at six-foot intervals.
  • Allow 30-minute buffers between shifts if possible so that employees don’t come into contact during transition.
  • Offer lunch breaks in vehicles instead of shared cafeterias or break rooms.  Limit shared food at the worksite.
  • Reduce use of shared office supplies/resources.
  • Provide education and training materials in an easy to understand format and in the appropriate language and literacy level for all employees
