Virginia COVID Training for Businesses

Virginia is now in Phase 3 of its Forward Virginia reopening plan. However, due to an increase in case positivity in the Eastern Region of the state (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Williamsburg, Norfolk, etc.), additional, more restrictive measures have been put into place for those cities and counties.

‍

Businesses in the rest of the state must follow the Phase 3 Vermont COVID guidelines for all sectors, as well as the requirements for their specific business sector. All businesses are required to provide best practices for hygiene and cleaning to their employees on a regular basis. In addition, restaurants and essential services employees must screen themselves for symptoms prior to and on days they are scheduled to work.

‍

Opus has developed COVID training programs that comply with both Virginia COVID guidelines and OSHA safety requirements. Opus's text-based training is accessible to your employees and enables you to promote a safe workplace for your staff and customers.
