What do I do if my employer is not providing safe space for social distancing?

ANSWER

This is a time that you should speak up to your employer as your health and others' health is at risk. Social distancing is incredibly important to help curb and prevent coronavirus infections. That means having at least 6 feet between people, as well as practicing good handwashing. In fact, the practice of social distancing and wearing masks has been credited with slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Both the CDC and other government agencies are strongly recommending social distancing. Here are some OSHA guidelines to share with your employer: https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHAFS-3747.pdf
