From the Document: "This document provides updated implementation guidance for the Department of Transportation's (DOT) COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Workplace Safety Plan. This implementation guidance applies DOT-wide and puts the health and safety of all Federal employees, on-site contractors, visitors, and their families at the center. This plan is built upon taking a safe, cautious, iterative, data-driven approach, and replaces previously published DOT guidance. [...] The DOT shifted to maximum telework on March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 20, 2020, the Office of Management and Budget [OMB] and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) directed Federal organizations to draft plans to return to normal operations, and to submit weekly telework and facilities reports by geographic locations. In May 2020, DOT published Framework for DOT's Return to Normal Operations. On January 24, 2021, OMB issued updated guidance, Memorandum 21-15, COVID-19 Safe Federal Workplace: Agency Model Safety Principles [hyperlink], to ensure a safer Federal workforce. Pursuant to this guidance and subsequent guidance listed in the Purpose section above, DOT amends previously published guidance and implements the following DOT COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan and Implementation Guidance."
