California employers are required to establish and implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) to protect employees from all worksite hazards, including infectious diseases. This guidance does not impose new legal obligations. It contains information for employers operating grocery stores on ways to update their IIPPs to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. This is mandatory in most California workplaces since COVID-19 is widespread in the community.
