blackwalnut is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees, design partners and clients. To ensure we have a safe and healthy workplace, we have developed the attached COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our workplace and communities, and that requires full cooperation among our employees, visitors and management. Only through this cooperative effort can we establish and maintain the safety and health of our employees and workplaces. Our COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State Department of Health (NYSDH) guidelines, federal OSHA standards related to COVID-19.
