St. Joseph River Yacht Club
SARS-CoV-2 Preparedness & Response Plan for
The following SARS-CoV-2 Preparedness & Response Plan has been established for St. Joseph River Yacht Club in accordance with the requirements in the most recent Executive Order (EO) concerning employee safety and health, and all requirements therein signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and also in accordance with Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 as referenced by EO. Specific requirements for employers in various industry sectors are contained in the associated order at:
The purpose of this program is to minimize or eliminate employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2. A copy of this program shall be provided to employees upon their request.
St. Joseph River Yacht Club has determined that all positions/jobs/tasks are medium exposure risk.
St. Joseph River Yacht Club will evaluate routine and reasonably anticipated tasks and procedures for all employees to determine whether there is actual or reasonably anticipated employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Nicole Collins will be responsible for seeing that exposure determination is performed.
Medium exposure risk jobs. These jobs include those that require frequent and/or close contact (for example, within six feet) with people who may be infected with SARS-CoV-2, but who are not known or suspected COVID-19 patients. In areas without ongoing community transmission, workers in this risk group may have frequent contact with travelers who may return from locations with widespread SARS-CoV-2 transmission. In areas where there is ongoing community transmission, workers in this category may have contact with the general public and coworkers (for example, schools, high-population-density work environments, high-volume retail settings).
St. Joseph River Yacht Club has implemented feasible engineering controls to prevent employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Engineering controls involve isolating employees from work-related hazards. In workplaces where they are appropriate, these types of controls reduce exposure to hazards without relying on worker behavior and can be the most cost-effective solution to implement.
Engineering controls for SARS-CoV-2 include:
■ Installing physical barriers, clear plastic sneeze guards.
■ Installing 6-foot distancing floor decals in all areas where lines would form.
■ Installing signage defining social distancing and PPE usage on property
■ Spacing of tables and chairs to provide social distance between members and staff.
Nicole Collins will be responsible for seeing that the correct engineering controls are chosen, installed and maintained and serviced for effectiveness as often as required.
The following engineering controls have been implemented.
Clear plastic physical barriers installed at face-to-face contact locations
Floor decals installed throughout the club to promote social distancing
Tables spaced to allow 6-feet spacing between parties
Limited occupancy on pool deck allowing 6-feet spacing between parties
Additional cleaning schedules/logs implemented throughout
Administrative controls are workplace policies, procedures, and practices that minimize or eliminate employee exposure to the hazard. Nicole Collins will be responsible for seeing that the correct administrative controls are chosen, implemented and maintained effectiveness in order to minimize or eliminate employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2.
Additional engineering controls are not recommended for workers in the lower exposure risk group. Low exposure risk group employers should monitor public health communications about COVID-19 recommendations and ensure that workers have access to that information. Frequently check the CDC COVID-19 website: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov.
The following administrative controls have been established for St. Joseph River Yacht Club. (Example: specify the Administrative control for each of the positions/job/task listed in the exposure determination, and how each engineering control is intended to function to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2.)
Face coverings for all employees provided by management. Employees are allowed to utilize their own face covering with management approval.
Signage posted warning members and guests of COVID-19.
Employees informed of free local COVID-19 testing locations and encouraged to obtain test.
Employees required to maintain social distance of 6-feet from each other whenever possible.
Hand Hygiene & Disinfection of Environmental Surfaces
Nicole Collins is responsible for seeing that adequate handwashing facilities are available in the workplace and that regular hand washing is required. Frequency of such handwashing will be determined in part by factors such as when and how often the employee’s hands are potentially exposed to SARS-CoV2-19. When provision of handwashing facilities is not feasible, the employer shall provide employees with antiseptic hand sanitizers or towelettes.
Nicole Collins is responsible for seeing that environmental surface in the workplace are cleaned and disinfected. Frequency of such disinfection will be determined in part by factors such as when and how often the environmental surfaces are potentially exposed to SARS-CoV2-19. When choosing cleaning chemicals, St. Joseph River Yacht Club will consult information on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant labels with claims against emerging viral pathogens. Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 based on data for harder to kill viruses. The manufacturer’s instructions for use of all cleaning and disinfection products will be strictly adhered to.
An enhanced cleaning and disinfection shall be performed after persons suspected or confirmed to have SARS-CoV2-19 have been in the workplace. Nicole Collins will be responsible for seeing that such a cleaning and disinfection is performed as required.
The following is a list of environmental surfaces, methods used to disinfect, and the frequency of such disinfection:
|Tables and chairs||Sanitizing wipes / spray||Between each guest seating|
|Pool chairs / handrails||Sanitizing wipes / spray – All high touch surfaces||Between each pool session|
|Outdoor showers||Sanitizing wipes / spray – All high touch surfaces||1x per hour – During each adult swim session|
|Outdoor bathrooms||Sanitizing wipes / spray – All high touch surfaces||1x per hour – During each adult swim session|
|Indoor bathrooms||Sanitizing wipes / spray – All high touch surfaces||Log posted in bathrooms|
|All doors and entryways||Sanitizing wipes / spray – All high touch surfaces||Several times an hour|
The following methods will be used for enhanced cleaning and disinfection:
All pool loungers and high touch surfaces sanitized between parties
Additional sanitation of outside and inside bathrooms
Removed/disabled all self-service locations
Utilizing one-use packages for condiments
Utilizing one-use menus
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
St. Joseph River Yacht Club will provide employees with personal protective equipment for protection from SARS-CoV-2 appropriate to the exposure risk associated with the job following the CDC and OSHA guidance applicable to the industry and types of jobs at the workplace and in accordance with latest EO.
Masks required to be worn when workers cannot consistently maintain six feet of separation from other individuals in the workplace.
St. Joseph River Yacht Club has implemented a screening protocol to identify known or suspected cases of COVID-19 among employees and isolate them from the remainder of the workforce. Nicole Collins will be responsible for ensuring that all required health surveillance provisions are performed as required.
At the beginning of each day at the start of each work shift St. Joseph River Yacht Club requires employees to screen for signs and symptoms COVID-19 as required. Employees have been directed to promptly report any signs and symptoms of COVID-19 to Nicole Collins before and during the work shift and have provided employees with instructions for how to make such a report to the employer.
