COVID-19 Visitor Protocols

In response to the health risks from the Coronavirus, Grace is limiting visitors to our facilities to those who are considered "business-critical." It will be up to our site leadership team to decide what "business critical" means, but the net result is to increase the safety of our workforce by reducing the number of visitors coming on to the site. In addition, Grace now requires all visitors to our sites to confirm that they do not present any COVID-19 risk factors. All visitors must confirm that;

1.      Within the last 14 days, you have not been within 3 feet or 1 meter—for more than 15 minutes—of any person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or directed to self-quarantine.

2.      Within the last 14 days, you have not experienced any of the following symptoms: 

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

OR at least two of these symptoms:

  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain

If, during the 14 days after you have been on a Grace site, you find that you can answer YES to any of these questions, please contact your Grace Point of Contact immediately so Grace can determine the Impact to Personnel related to COVID-19 to ensure we identify any and all potential personnel impacted.  

​At Grace, we practice the "W-AT-C-H" (Wash your Hands, Avoid Touching your face, Cover your mouth when you cough and Hold back, avoid close contact) to keep our employees save from COVID-19. We ask that all Grace visitors to our sites follow these same steps while on our facility. ​

"Visitors" include:

1.      Those who deliver production material as well as packages such as DHL, FedEx, UPS, mail, etc.; 

2.      Those who provide custodial/cleaning, trash hauling, vending, and other routine services as well as those who routinely deliver office supplies and equipment;

3.      Long-term service providers such as maintenance contractors, construction workers, accountants;

4.      "Resident" contractors and temporary workers who may come onto our site every day;

5.      Those who are visiting for a meeting or other one-time event.
