Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) Pandemic Conditions: Director's Interim Procedure, Revision: 03-18-2020   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "With a declaration of a pandemic, additional precautions to avoid the spread of respiratory illness in the workplace will be taken. During a declared pandemic, employers can ask additional questions, require additional screenings, or enact protocols aimed at workplace safety and preventing the spread of the illness. The primary goal during a pandemic is to stop the spread of the illness to others. Employers have a responsibility to keep their workforce safe. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) regulations during a pandemic identify four factors in determining whether an employee poses a direct threat: (1) duration of the risk; (2) nature and severity of the potential harm; (3) the likelihood that potential harm will occur; and (4) the imminence of the potential harm. [...] This document outlines procedures in compliance with EEOC and CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance, the primary mission of the department, and reasonable accommodations that can be made based on the work responsibilities of each employee group."
