  • PA Secretary of Health provides instruction for life-sustaining businesses to remain operational
    Updated On: Jul 17, 2020
    Wendell Young IV
    UFCW 1776KS President
    Dear UFCW Members:
    Today, thanks in part to pressure from UFCW 1776KS, the PA Secretary of Health, Dr. Rachel Levine, signed an order that provides instruction for life-sustaining businesses to remain operating.
    In addition to maintaining pre-existing cleaning protocols, the order outlines these new protocols:
    • Clean and disinfect high-touch areas routinely in accordance with CDC guidelines, in spaces that are accessible to customers, tenants, or other individuals.
    • Maintain pre-existing cleaning protocols established in the facility for all other areas of the building.
    • Ensure that the facility has a sufficient number of employees to perform the above protocols effectively and in a manner that ensures the safety of occupants and employees.
    • Ensure that the facility has a sufficient number of security employees to control access, maintain order, and enforce social distancing of at least 6 feet, provided the security employees are otherwise responsible for such enforcement.
    The full PDF of Secretary Levine’s order is available here in English and here in Spanish .
    We at UFCW 1776KS will work to ensure that the Wolf administration and our member companies comply with this order fully. Furthermore, we anticipate this is only the first step to ensure essential worker safety in Pennsylvania. We will keep you updated as things change.
    If you have concerns with how your employer is complying with this order, please let us know at covid19@ufcw1776.org
