COVID-19 Training and Protocols for Texas Employers
To learn more, view our list of states with COVID-19 programs in place.
On July 2, the State of Texas issued a revised checklist of minimum standards for employers and event organizers to follow to protect workers and limit the spread of COVID-19. This latest revision requires training for all employees and contractors on how to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 infection and how to prevent transmission.
The “Health protocols for your employees and contractors” section of the checklist, linked below, states that all employees and contractors must recieve COVID-19 training that covers “appropriate cleaning and disinfection, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette.”
Appropriate COVID-19 training may include, but is not limited to:
- How to establish and maintain adequate social distancing;
- Face covering etiquette and requirements;
- Coughing and/or sneezing etiquette;
- Proper hand washing protocols as well as proper hand sanitizer usage; and
- Guidance on cleaning and sanitizing high-touch surfaces such as workstations, equipment, screens, doorknobs, and restrooms.
