Providing very specific training for employees on proper use and handling of masks, gloves, etc. When you return to your desk and remove your mask, where do you put it? Can you put it in a bag and reuse it?
Can everyone please mute
A best practice is to have a paper bag to store your mask.
Is there any discussion of funding resources to offset increased training costs associated with new procedures, including but not limited to VOSHA?
Are you requiring employees who travel out of state to self quarantine for 14 days before returning to work. Thank you- Ashley Adams at P.G. Adams
Best practices for handling inbound shipments, in particular small parcel shipments from FedEx/UPS. Should businesses disinfect or let material sit for a period of time before handling/processing?
what type of masks are we actually talking about?
What obligations (as an employer) do we have, if we know an employee has gone out of state in violation of the "stay home stay safe" order.
What are some of the best practices around sanitizing common areas with the limited availability of commercially available wipes?
Thank you, Lisa
Best practices for taking individuals temperatures daily?
What is the current thinking on mandatory temperature checking when Covid cases can be asymptomatic?
Ken - What kind of phased in Return to work plan have you decided to implement at OnLogic?
Again related to temperature taking. The standard I have seen published most widely is 100.4 degrees. Is this the threshold most are using to screen employee temperatures?
How are the temperatures taken while maintaining 6 ft distance and not violating HIPPA laws?
what screener questions is rob green using?
how do we tell an employee with significant symptoms from an employee with spring allergies?
How are others managing workers in close proximity when social distancing is not possible? PPE?
What screening questions are asked ?
Is there a recommended phase for employees who are currently working form home to come back to work? Is it until May 15th or indefinately?

We received a question from a company about employees that have either a psychological or a physical problem with wearing a mask. What accommodation obligations/strategies might be required on the part of the employer, what disability or other benefits might be available for the employee, other recommendations on handling such situations.
If an employee leaves the state for personal reasons (non-essential), and then self-quarantines for 14 days is the company obligated to provide pay under the families first act?
How are people managing overtime and cross shift exposure?
How do you define "additional" PPE?
what if we have a cluster of employees who are in denial about the danger and the need for caution?
Company Plan Documentation was mentioned during the Phil Scott’s press conference today, what should we be documenting to protect the company legally?

Second on John Schult's question.
N95s aren't available and I really question the effectiveness of simple face coverings. What are folks using for PPEs?

The dangerous behavior is happening outside the workplace, and is learned about through a small community.

As many folks on the call know, Vermont is a leader in the on-the-job training method called TWI Job Instruction. I'm wondering if there is interest in using this methodology to enable the nation's safest reopening here in VT?
Great information, thank you everyone!
Practical advice - thank you very much.
Thank you to VMEC and the panel
