Knowing that employee health is paramount to doing a good job and employee comfort and safety is taken seriously listed below are the COVID-19 recommendations for working at TGMH. Everyone must own a face mask. If you do not have one, TGMH will provide one for you.

  1. Facemasks must be worn under the following conditions: You share an office and both of you are occupying the office at the same time. If you are working alone in the office, you may take the mask off but must wear it if someone enters your office.
  2. Facemasks must be worn in common areas such as the hallway, conference area, supply/coffee room, and bathroom.
  3. Facemask compliance is required as designated by 30 East Padonia Office Building. Their requirements are posted on the front door of the building. Their main requirement being facemasks upon entry and limiting people in elevators.
  4. If you do not feel comfortable sharing an office during this time, you may work at the conference room table.
  5. When we have staff meetings in the office, they will take place at the conference room table where everyone will sit at least 6 feet apart and wear masks.
  6. Employees are responsible for keeping their area and common area clean and disinfected. For example, disinfecting the conference table after use, or using hand sanitizer before using items in the common area (microwave or coffee maker).
  7. Hero will provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant to all employees, volunteers and guests.
  8. You are not required at this time to come into the office and can work remotely, if you do not have a reason to be in the office. One reason would be to pick up a drive kit or other relevant supplies, and/or meetings requiring you to be in person.
  9. If you are feeling sick or if you have been exposed, you are not allowed to return to the office until 2 weeks of quarantine have been completed.
  10. If you are feeling sick and have not been exposed to COVID, please limit contact or consider working remotely for the safety of others.
  11. Due to the ever-changing nature of COVID 19 research, information, regulations and requirements governing the County and State, the above recommendations are subject to change.
  12. If you have any questions or concerns related to COVID 19 as it pertains to your safety and the safety of others, please speak to your supervisor.
  13. And remember, we are all in this together. Let’s be considerate and kind to each other during this unpredictable and unprecedented time.
