    COVID-19 FACE COVERINGS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


    HOW DO I DETERMINE HOW MANY WORKERS CAN OCCUPY A HOIST OR ELEVATOR?

    hoists and elevators can operate at 50% capacity. in the event a hoist or elevator lists its maximum capacity by weight, contact the hoist or elevator applicant, if applicable, for the information. if there is no applicant (e.g. where using an existing building elevator as part of unrelated work) divide the total weight by half and divide again by 200 to determine the number of occupants who can use the hoist or elevator at one time.


    WHERE ARE SAFETY PLANS TO BE POSTED?

    Safety Plans should be posted at all points of egress from the construction site.


    WHAT IF I’M A CONTRACTOR PERFORMING WORK THAT DOESN’T REQUIRE A PERMIT (E.G. REROOFING), DO I NEED A SAFETY PLAN?

    Yes, as an employer in the construction industry intending to resume work you need to have read and submitted an affirmation that you understand your obligation to operate in accordance with NYS DOH interim construction guidance. Additionally, you must have a safety plan for all of your actively working construction sites regardless of whether a permit from DOB is required.


    AS PART OF THE SAFETY PLAN, WHAT SHOULD MY SCREENING LOG INCLUDE?

    Screening logs must include a daily accounting of each employee and visitor, and a record of the answers to their screening questions having been reviewed. Keeping records of employee health data (e.g. temperature data) is prohibited. General contractors or other permit holders can reference subcontractors in their screening logs if they so choose.


    FOR HOW LONG A PERIOD TIME ARE THE SAFETY PLAN AND ASSOCIATED LOGS TO BE MAINTAINED AND AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION?

    The Safety Plan and associated logs should be maintained and available for inspection until such requirement is rescinded.


    SHOULD EMPLOYERS NOTIFY PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS IF AN EMPLOYEE TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19?

    Yes. State guidance requires employers to notify public health officials if they learn of an employee who is a confirmed or suspected case. If employers which to report directly to public health authorities, they can email the New York City Test and Trace Corps at CovidEmployerReport@nychhc.org. Please note that the NYC Test and Trace program will only follow up on confirmed cases and will not reply to reports received through this email. New York City is performing contact tracing based on confirmed cases reported through a robustelectronic laboratory reporting system.


    ARE DOB INSPECTORS AND OTHER FIELD STAFF SUBJECT TO SCREENING AT CONSTRUCTION SITES IN THE MANNER REQUIRED IN THE GUIDANCE FOR EMPLOYEES AND VISITORS?

    As city employees performing essential regulatory duties, all DOB inspectors and field staff are required to wear face coverings when visiting sites. Inspectors and other field staff who visit construction sites self-monitor for any COVID-19 symptom. As such, inspectors and field staff are not subject to screening and must be permitted access to a construction site. Failure to provide access will result in the issuance of a Stop Work Order.


    WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE DOB’S GUIDANCE?

    For thirty days beginning June 8, 2020, violations will carry no monetary penalty. After thirty days, violations will carry an initial penalty of $5,000 and may result in the issuance of a Stop Work Order. Subsequent violations will carry a penalty of $10,000.


    FOR HOW LONG WILL THIS GUIDANCE BE IN EFFECT?

    The guidance remains in effect until the State rescinds or amends its Executive Order and related guidance.
