With the increase in reported cases in the Sacramento Valley and Ag processing in the San Joaquin Valley, now is the time to look at your COVID-19 plans and make sure they are up to date. We offer the following from CDFA, including procedures to follow if an outbreak occurs.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture has added two educational documents to the COVID-19 Resources for Food and Agriculture webpage: https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/coronavirus/. The attached documents are designed to help distill the latest COVID-19 guidance and resources specific for agricultural workers into one place.
This document offers straightforward advice on how to prevent, educate and respond to COVID-19.
This document reinforces and broadens the education component through highlighting what actions have worked best in the field for farmworker education.
