We put together a quick listicle to show you immediate ways you can show worker support and solidarity during the coronavirus pandemic. If you’d like a more detailed resource, be sure to check out our How to Be an Equitable Employer During the Coronavirus Pandemic guide.
Encourage Workers to Stay Home if Sick
This includes telling them of all the possible ways they are able to get paid while quarantining. You can also share this flowchart which best explains what resources are available for your workers.
Encourage Working From Home or Staggering Shifts
It might be hard to imagine at first, but think outside the box. This is one of the easiest ways to provide protection.
Clean and Disinfect Surfaces, Equipment, and other Daily Use Objects
Using EPA-approved cleaning chemicals and following manufacturer’s instructions for proper disinfection.
Provide a Place to Wash Hands or Sanitize
We’re looking at you Grows. Providing potable water and sanitary restrooms are basic human rights.
Encourage Workers to Report any Safety and Health Concerns
Especially to a third-party nonprofit like Cannabis Workers Coalition who will work with you to overcome any obstacles.
