As more counties move into the yellow phase of re-opening, the Pennsylvania Department of Health is requiring businesses conducting in-person operations or serving the public to post a sign confirming they’re following state guidelines.
The department is requiring businesses “to make employees and customers aware of the guidance provided by the Commonwealth to keep people at their establishment safe.” Thus, these businesses “must print, sign, and post the ‘COVID-19 Safety Procedures for Businesses’ flyer on their premises. The flyer is located on the Department of Health’s ‘Resources for COVID-19’ webpage. Businesses must post the signed flyer in employee common space and, if the business serves the public, the business must also post the flyer near the business’s public entrance(s) in prominent location(s).” You can also find the document here.
Businesses must sign the flyer and indicate who is in charge of COVID-19 safety procedures for the business. The business does not need to file the form with the state or submit a safety plan.
All businesses must continue to check the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s website to get up-to-date information on the COVID-19 response. If you have any questions on this requirement, please contact me or any member of the Barley Snyder Employment Practice Group.
