Lessons Learned in COVID-19 Prevention Efforts Among Agriculture Workers & Employers Webinar
September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Agriculture work sites, shared worker housing, and shared worker transportation vehicles present unique challenges for preventing and controlling the spread of COVID-19. Consistent application of specific preparation, prevention, and management measures can help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Best practices in COVID-19 testing and contact training will be shared to help agricultural producers identify strategies for responding on their farm.
The CDC COVID-19 prevention guidance for agriculture will also be shared to assist employers in adopting recommendations to protect workers.
