The County of Los Angeles is regularly updating resources on COVID-19 and offers today’s update in an effort to keep you and yours informed. Please share the following up-to-date information:
LA County Launches COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certification Program
Today, LA County launched the COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certificate Program(CSCCP) to further help educate and train business owners on the implementation of LA County’s COVID-19 safety protocols.
CSCCP is a no-cost online training course that educates business owners on the essentials of the County Health Officer’s Orders – including what they need to do to ensure business practices are aligned (and in compliance) with infection control and physical distancing requirements.
After completing the training, businesses will receive aCOVID-19 Safety Compliance Certificate that can be posted on store fronts. The window seal informs customers that your business has been trained in COVID-19 protocols, thereby offering businesses, employees, and consumers alike the added reassurance that essential training has been completed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
CSCCP training can be accessed online through DPH’s COVID-19 website at publichealth.lacounty.gov/eh/covid19cert.htm and will be available in 13 languages.
Read today’s announcement for more on the COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certification Program. For the latest information on LA County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, visit covid19.lacounty.gov or follow us @CountyofLA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
