  • Assembly Bill 685, which requires employers to report information concerning COVID-19 outbreaks to local public health agencies, as well as provide written notice to employees of potential exposure to COVID-19

Theme Park Guidance Not Forthcoming
Dear Industry Partners,

The long-awaited theme park reopening guidance Gov. Newsom issued on Tuesday left many in California’s tourism industry devastated.

Working at the front desk has never been an easy job, but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused hotels to make operational changes that often confuse and frustrate guests, making the job even more difficult lately.

Important COVID-19 Update: “Close Contact” Redefined to Mean 15 Cumulative Minutes

We want to alert you to a significant COVID-19 development out of the CDC yesterday. Specifically, the CDC just announced a material revision to its definition of “Close Contact.” The new definition makes it explicit that the 15-minute exposure period (i.e., within 6-feet of an infected individual for 15 minutes) should be assessed based on a cumulative amount of time over 24 hours, not just a single, continuous 15-minute interaction.​
