COVID-19 Updates

First and foremost, we hope that everyone and their families are staying safe during this time. It is important to take measures to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. View the symptoms here and follow the CDC's prevention tips here. Employers, train your employees to increase awareness and preventing the spread of COVID-19 with our training shorts, provided in both English and Spanish.

For our clients who need to file a claim the most efficient way is to do it is call the carrier directly. Below is a list of claim reporting information for our carriers. We will continue to update this information.

We have identified a resource we feel is valuable to share with our George Petersen clients and the business community as a whole. Check out the comprehensive resource center for business owners navigating  COVID-19 here.

Join George Petersen's Jared Goble and Safety Pride's Jim Persons to gain insight on best practices for the Construction Industry during COVID-19. They will be discussing the best practices on protecting essential employees, as well as preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus with the use of PPE's.

OSHA INFORMATION
Click here to view OSHA's document for Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19. Below are some important points provided in this document.

Employers should consider and address the level(s) or risk associated with various worksites and job tasks workers perform at those sites.
  • Where, how and to what sources of SARS-CoV-2 might workers be exposed, including:
    • The general public, customers, and coworkers; and
    • Sick individuals or those at particularly high risk of infection (e.g. international travelers who have visited locations with widespread sustained (ongoing) COVID-19 transmission, healthcare workers who have had unprotected exposures to people known to have, or suspected of having COVID-19).
  • Non-occupational risk factors at home and in a community setting
  • The need for social distancing, staggered work shifts, downsizing operations, delivering services remotely, and other exposure reducing measures.
Prepare to implement Basis Infection Prevention Measures
  • Promote frequent and thorough hand washing, including by providing workers, customers, and worksite visitors with a place to wash their hands. If soap and running water are not immediately available, provide alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60% alcohol.
  • Encourage workers to stay home if they are sick.
  • Encourage respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
  • Employers should explore whether they can establish policies and practices, such as flexible worksites (e.g., telecommuting) and flexible work hours (e.g., staggered shifts), to increase physical distance among employees.
  • Maintain regular housekeeping practices, including routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, equipment, and other elements of the work environment.
Develop Policies and Procedures for Prompt Identification and Isolation of Sick People
  • Employers should inform and encourage employees to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 if they suspect possible exposure.
  • Actively encourage sick employees to stay home
Employers are also encouraged to:
  • Discontinue nonessential travel to locations with ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks. Regularly check the CDC travel warning levels.
  • Where appropriate, limit customers’ and the public’s access to the worksite, or restrict access to only certain workplace areas.
  • Consider strategies to minimize face-to-face contact.

EDD (EMPLOYMENT DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT) INFORMATION

Workers sick or quarantined

If you’re unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Disability Insurance (DI) claim.  Disability provides short-term benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages. The one-week waiting period has been waived.

Caregiving

If you’re unable to work because you are caring for an ill or quarantined family member with COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Paid Family Leave (PFL) claim. PFL provides up to six weeks of benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages because they need time off work to care for a seriously ill family member.  A family member is defined as seriously ill child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or registered domestic partner.  There is no waiting week for PFL.

Reduced Work Hours

If your employer has reduced your hours or shut down operations due to COVID-19, you can file an Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim. UI provides partial wage replacement benefit payments to workers who lose their job or have their hours reduced, through no fault of their own. The one-week waiting period has been waived.
