COVID-19 Guidelines for Office Use
Updated: January 2022
The health and safety of our employees and guests is of priority as we continue to monitor and adapt to the COVID- 19 situation. LBPC will continue to follow guidance from the Governor’s Office and King County Department of Health. We will also consider input from our staff members via regular safety conversations during staff meetings. We encourage everyone to be responsible and exercise self-care, as well as adhere to the protocols below in the workplace in an effort to meet our commitment to the health and safety of staff and tenants.
Due to this being a fluid circumstance, changes may happen on a regular basis and LBPC will make every effort to update employees if our preventive measures require adjusting.
At this time, we are working in the office, and the guidelines below are intended to maintain a safe environment for those working at the office. We can transition to working from home as needed, depending on the current COVID-19 situation.
Here are the latest updates from King County regarding safe workplace practices:
Below are the ways to ensure we all remain safe and healthy:
- Staff may only work at designated desks and workspaces. LBPC adheres to spacing and distancing recommendations.
- Please, never come into the office feeling less than well – even if you’re confident it’s only allergies.
- LBPC has a thermometer to aid staff and guests in determining if they have a fever.
- Wear a mask into the office and in the common areas.
- Please immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when arriving in the office.
- Please wipe the door handles down that you’ve used entering the office space.
- There are extra masks for guests, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes in the main office. All staff members are encouraged to use hand sanitizer and do supplemental cleaning on your desk or other areas you use.
- Within our “workspace”, given that we are working in the office, please follow these rules:
- When possible, remain in your own workspace (your assigned office or a space that is available for use such as a vacant workspace).
- After using the kitchen, wipe down surfaces.
- Employees are responsible for wiping down their own offices daily, keeping them clutter free for ease of cleaning and maintenance.
- Practice social distancing at all times.
- As long as social distancing can be maintained, it is up to the individual if they choose to wear their mask in their individual office.
- Please honor all requests by a co-worker to wear a mask promptly.
- Wear masks for all in-person meetings.
- If someone is wearing a mask around you, it is considerate to put your mask on, as well. Your mask protects other people, and their masks protect you.
Procedures if you experience any symptoms:
Stay home if you have any of these symptoms:
- Fever OR Shortness of breath OR Cough
Other symptoms may include:
- Muscle Pain
- Sore Throat
- Loss of taste or smell
- Nausea or Vomiting
(Recommend scheduling a COVID-19 Test and reaching out to your primary doctor)
How long do you need to stay home if you have symptoms?
Every person’s situation can be different. The length of time you must stay home depends on how long you have symptoms.
You can be around other people after:
- 24 hours with no fever AND
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared AND
- Other symptoms have improved
What if you are exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and you have no symptoms?
Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine after close contact with a person who has COVID-19, but recommend you get tested for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) 5-7 days after your last contact with the person who has COVID-19, monitor for symptoms for 14 days after your last contact, and wear a mask in public indoor spaces until receipt of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result or for 14 days after your last contact if not tested.
Unvaccinated or not yet fully vaccinated individuals should get tested for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and quarantine at home and away from others. If your first test is negative, recommend you get tested again 5-7 days after your last contact with the person who has COVID-19 and continue to quarantine. Wear a mask if you must be around other people inside or outside your household. Watch for symptoms for 14 days after your last contact, and if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, recommend getting tested again and follow the steps referenced in “Procedures if you experience in symptoms” listed above.
