West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection Issues Protocol for Field Staff



March 18, 2020 - Please adhere to the following protocols to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19:

- Practice social distancing.  Keep at least 6 feet between you and others.  Try to do as much over the phone as possible.

- Cancel meetings or limit gatherings to no more than 10 people.

- Practice good hygiene.  Wash your hands, especially after touching any frequently used item or surface.  If soap and water is not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.  Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.


- If asked to do a preliminary screening at an entrance to a mine site, please participate.


- Sync inspection data to ERIS remotely to avoid office visits.  Refer to the instructions from Amy Crouser.


- If you feel sick, do not report to work.  Notify your supervisor.


- If someone in your household tests positive for the coronavirus, do not report to work.  Arrangements can be made to work from home.
