As we prepare for employees to return to their positions within our schools, offices, and buildings districtwide, we have reviewed the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDOE), the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Services (SCDHEC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
HCS has adopted safeguards throughout the district to help keep employees safe from exposure to COVID-19 when they return to their workplace.
Some of these measures include:
- Increased environmental cleaning.
- Discouraging shared workspaces.
- Requiring face coverings and other personal protective equipment as appropriate.
- Providing additional options for worker hygiene such as encouraging hand washing, providing hand sanitizer in multiple locations, etc.
