Exposure Update – An employee from B/159C is in self quarantine. Their last day in the office was 7/27, the employee was not displaying any symptoms and was exposed in the home. A case from B/156G where the employee may have been exposed prior to July 2, was cleared, and returned to work on July 24th. The employee who works in B195D that was quarantined has been cleared and will report to work tomorrow. Other cases reported previously: The B/181& 182 employee who last worked on July 21 is still out and has not been cleared to return to work. The two employees in B/181& 182 who were directed to self-quarantine due to contact tracing have not been cleared to return to work. The cases that are still unresolved are: the non-bargaining unit employee who last worked in B/156G on 7/3/2020, and an employee from B/156 who has been out since 6/18. We will keep you informed on these cases as we find out more details.

The Decision Tree – There is a change to the process of notifying the company if you may have been exposed to the Corona Virus. Attached is the decision tree identifying this new procedure. Instead of calling the hotline you are to notify your manager and stay home. Your manager will notify the corona virus task force point of contact (refer to attached process flow) who will reach out to you directly. You will be subjected to a brief questionaire, and your answers will be submitted to company medical for further evaluation and guidance. Review the upcoming Covid Digest which will further clarify Q & A regarding this new procedure. See attached slide.

Misting – Misting will be performed on July 29th thru 31, and August 3 & 4 in B/181 & 182 . A reminder to put all personal items away such as drink cups etc. Misting operations occur between 0300- 0500 on the days scheduled.

Masks– The following requirements from the company were sent to the Union this afternoon regarding facial coverings.
Requirement to Wear Facial Coverings/Masks:
• It is generally expected that facial coverings be worn at all times, however, they can be temporarily removed when employees have at least six feet of physical separation such as:
o Being alone in an office or closed working space

Symptom Checking Prior to Work –LM Space employees as well as vendors, are to self-check their symptoms prior to coming into the facility. Temperature checking stations are located at all Bay Area locations; B/520 Lobby in Santa Clara, B/202 in Palo Alto, B/602 in Santa Cruz, and the Visitors Center in Sunnyvale. If a temperature of 100.4 is indicated you are to go home and contact your manager.
