Returning To The Office: Our COVID-19 Policies
As we work toward reopening our office in the coming weeks, I would like to share our updated COVID-19 policy. Beginning the week of June 22, 2020, we will be booking a limited number of in-office document signing appointments; the week of July 5, 2020 we will resume normal office hours. We will continue to serve clients who prefer phone and Zoom conference remotely for consultations and other applicable appointments. My staff and I appreciate your patience as we navigate through this time and would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation.
DEBRA ROBINSON LAW GROUP COVID-19 OFFICE POLICY
The safety of our clients, our staff, and visitors to the office is of paramount importance during this time. Therefore, we will observe the following precautions in accordance with CDC guidelines in order to maintain a healthy work environment and we expect all staff and visitors to adhere to these precautions:
- Any attorney or staff member experiencing symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea should immediately report those symptoms to Debra Robinson (whether or not the symptoms occur at the office) and follow CDC recommended precautions.
- Attorneys or staff who have a sick family member at home should immediately notify Debra Robinson and follow CDC recommended precautions.
- Attorneys and staff should report any contact with persons with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
- DRLG will provide a forehead thermometer to check temperatures. Attorney and staff temperatures will be checked on their first entry into the suite each day, or if they report feeling ill. Any person with a temperature of 100.4 F or greater will not be allowed entry and/or will be required to leave the suite.
- Social distancing will be practiced within the firm, including the following:
- All attorneys and staff with offices will be required to keep their doors closed when they are in their offices.
- Face coverings will be required of all attorneys and staff when not in their assigned offices, including when they enter and exit the suite.
- All attorneys and staff will practice social distancing outside the office and wear a cloth face covering when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Wearing a cloth face covering, however, does not replace the need to practice social distancing.
- Everyone in the suite should remain six (6) feet apart at all times.
- All attorneys and staff should wash their hands with soap and water frequently and/or use hand sanitizer. DRLG will provide soap and water in the kitchen and hand sanitizer at strategic locations within the suite. Hands should be washed or sanitized often.
- All surfaces shall be disinfected immediately following interaction with a person who is not a DRLG attorney or staff member. In addition, surfaces in the office shall be disinfected as often as possible.
- Attorneys and staff should avoid using other employees’ phones, desks, offices, or work tools and equipment, when possible. If not possible, they should be cleaned and disinfected before and after each use.
