ABSTRACT

Safeguarding Staff and Work Environment from COVID-19   [open pdf - 353KB]

From the Overview: "The health and safety of election staff is of paramount concern to election officials as they prepare to administer the November 2020 election. Protecting staff 'now' offers administrators the greatest opportunity to minimize the operational risks associated with running elections, particularly in an environment with many expected changes in voting behavior and changes to election administration processes and procedures. Unlike the management decisions concerning how voters will participate in November, work environment changes can be introduced now by election officials and modified as time goes on and the situation changes. Much of the guidance in this document is based upon reviewing information available from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). [...] The points addressed in this document are a mix of engineering and administrative changes that can help isolate workers from the virus as much as possible and change the way they work to avoid exposure in situations where all risk cannot be eliminated."
