THR COVID-19 Safety

During the COVID-19 outbreak The Hamptons Runner team is prepared to follow the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s COVID-19 workplace guidelines to ensure the safety of our clients and our team. 


As detailed by the CDC, “Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.” 


In light of this, THR has implemented administrative control and personal protective equipment policies to minimize exposure as well as maximize prevention. The following policy measures are recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration:


Basic Infection Prevention Measures


  1. All Runners will, to the best of their abilities, maintain 6-feet of separation to adhere to New York State and Suffolk county social distance guidelines.

  2. All Runner employees will be provided with CDC recommended “Lower Exposure Risk” PPE equipment. This includes masks and gloves that follow New York State and Suffolk county mandates.

  3. All Runners will wash facemasks and change gloves between job-sites.

  4. All Runners will carry EPA verified alcohol-based hand rubs - containing at least 60% alcohol - and clorox wipes in the field. Runners will wipe any and all surfaces they come into direct contact with, and use hand sanitizer consistently. 

  5. Runners are discouraged from using other people’s personal equipment when possible.

  6. Runners will be provided up-to-date education and training on COVID-19 risk factors and protective behaviors (e.g., cough etiquette and care of PPE).


Identification and Isolation of Sick People when appropriate 


In the unlikely event in which a member of our team suspects infection, prompt identification and isolation of potentially infectious individuals is a “critical step” in protecting workers, customers, visitors, and others at worksites. To that end:


  1. Runners are required to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19

  2. Runners are required to contact the Runner Management Team if they suspect possible exposure or are experiencing symptoms of any kind. 

  3. If a Runner reports suspicion of a possible exposure or reports having symptoms, they are required to either isolate for 14 days without symptoms or provide a negative test result in order to return to work.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We would be happy to clarify and address any questions or concerns.
