The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light how important workplace health standards are for containing the coronavirus, stemming any outbreaks, and protecting our overall public health. Along with other organizations around Los Angeles County, we’ve launched #CouncilsNotCOVID to call on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to pass a policy implementing Public Health Councils.
The County of Los Angeles can help protect public health and prevent community spread by implementing Public Health Councils at workplaces.
As Los Angeles begins to reopen and we see a surge in COVID-19 cases, we are reminded that any recovery plan must be centered around workers and the workplace. Workplaces serve as gathering points for members of the public, whether that be in an office building, a packaging warehouse, a restaurant, or anywhere else. Insufficiently enforced health standards in the workplace threaten public health, business operations, and our entire economy. Simply put, economic recovery, and public health, begins in the workplace and workers are our most valuable resource for monitoring adherence to health protocols.
Tell Your Representative: #CouncilsNotCOVID
As the need, and support, for Public Health Councils continues to grow, the choice is ultimately in the hands of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and they need to hear from YOU.TAKE ACTION
