New Mexico has issued guidance for employers reopening their businesses in the Land of Enchantment, requiring them to provide training for all employees on best practices to protect staff and customers from COVID-19.
According All Together New Mexico, published by the Governor’s office on July 31, 2020, workers must all be trained on “daily cleaning and disinfecting protocol, hygiene, and respiratory etiquette (e.g., covering coughs).”
Therefore, training may include (but is not limited to):
- How to clean and disinfect the workplace;
- Proper hand washing technique and hand sanitizer usage;
- How and when to wear face coverings; and
- Cough and sneeze etiquette.
The guidelines also list “COVID-Safe Practices” certain businesses must follow, including warehouses, food production facilities, farms, ranches, dairy producers and processors, construction companies, and other businesses.
