COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Face Coverings

BPA employees, contractors and visitors are required to wear a cloth face covering or mask that covers their mouth and nose when in a BPA facility or worksite. If you are ever in doubt whether an exception applies to your situation, wear a face covering or mask.  Clarifying details are included below for the four most prominent BPA workspaces as well as general exceptions and considerations.

Social Distancing and Building Access

Anyone reporting to a BPA job site should engage in a self-screen questionnaire prior to building entry and contact their supervisor and not report for duty if currently experiencing symptoms.

With much of the workforce in telework status, building occupancy is greatly decreased. Social distancing should be practiced when at any BPA job site.

During Level 2-A and 2-B, managers will be responsible for review and approval of building access. Generally, employees who are teleworking will not be given access, unless approved by the employee’s manager to meet a business need requiring entry. If approved, employees should engage in a self-screen questionnaire prior to building entry and avoid entry during shift changes for mission essential function workers from 5:30-6:30 a.m. and 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Munro, Dittmer and headquarters.
