EMAIL ALERT: COVID-19 Update—Keeping Our Workforces Safe

SACRAMENTO, July 1, 2020 — The impact of COVID-19 on our everyday lives has been profound and is forcing changes to nearly all daily activities. It has changed how we work around others and forced us to become proactive in how we conduct inspections in the field and at our offices to protect our workforce.

During these challenging times, we are reaching out to our industry partners to ensure we are meeting your needs. We are also asking for your assistance as we all work together to keep our workforces safe. We have made many resources available to the agricultural industry through our COVID-19 Resources for Food and Agriculture website, which, in the Worker Safety section, includes CDC Guidance for Agriculture Workers and Employers and an Agricultural Employer Checklist for Creating a COVID-19 Assessment and Control Plan, as well as state guidance and checklists for agricultural industries.

We recognize that many other businesses are also taking steps to protect their workforce and reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19 in their workplaces, and we understand a cannabis farmer might approach COVID-19 prevention differently. In light of that, and to ensure our CalCannabis field staff are adequately informed of your procedures prior to arriving at your licensed cannabis premises, we may contact you to ask about any nonproprietary safety measures you are using or plan to use in the near future. We appreciate your help with these efforts, and we look forward to working with you to ensure we provide the safest work environments possible throughout this pandemic.
