TEAM MEMBERS INTERACTING WITH BUILDING STAFF, VENDORS, AND ATTENDEES

In public areas, Smart City team members will practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from other groups of people while standing in lines, using elevators or moving around the property. Team members will be reminded not to touch their faces and to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from guests and other employees whenever possible, including no handshakes.

If a co-worker or a guest is exhibiting known symptoms of COVID-19, our team members will adhere to building policy regarding the appropriate reporting procedure.

Appropriate masks and gloves will be worn by all Smart City staff based on their role and responsibilities and in adherence to state or local regulations and guidance. After all interactions are concluded with coworkers and/or guests, Smart City staff will dispose of gloves in an approved manner or wash their hands based on CDC guidelines or use hand sanitizer when a sink is not available.
