Interim Guidance from the CDC and U.S. Department of Labor
On June 2, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Labor jointly issued COVID-19 Interim Guidance for Agricultural Workers and Employers (Spanish version).
This guidance provides a template of action to protect agricultural workers from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Agricultural employers can adapt these new recommendations to protect workers at their particular work sites or in specific work operations.
Agricultural Employer Checklist for Creating a COVID-19 Assessment and Control Plan. To prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19, agricultural employers can use this checklist to create a COVID-19 assessment and control plan for applying specific preparation, prevention and management measures.
Welcome to the National Farm Medicine Center, where we apply research to help ensure the success of every type of agricultural operation.
Whether you are a researcher, safety and health professional, or anyone who works with people involved in production agriculture, you will find resources and information on this website that can help prevent injuries in one of our most hazardous industries. This website also highlights ongoing research projects and resulting outcomes and services.
Our scientists and staff focus on injury prevention, injury surveillance, community outreach and education, the farm microbiome and human immunology, evaluation of programs, and mental well-being. Visit our sister website, CultivateSafety.org, for more resources and information on safety strategies and resources for producers, farm families and media.
