We hope that sharing our relevant Safety Policy and Procedure, adapted from and in compliance with NY State Phase I Reopening Guidelines and HIPAA, OSHA, and CDC regulation will help you feel safe and secure when you visit a Pace location.

Pace Health Screening & Standards

All Pace employees working on-site at Pace locations and on Pace Gallery Trucks are required to complete a daily Health Screening Questionnaire prior to being cleared for work. Employees are asked NOT to come to work if they:

  • Test positive or suspect exposure or a COVID-19 diagnosis of themselves or a household member.
  • Have experienced a fever in the past 48 hours.
  • Are experiencing two or more symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19 other than fever that cannot be attributed to a preexisting condition or injury (cough, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, muscle or body aches, etc.).
  • Have been notified of exposure to COVID-19 and are under a mandatory quarantine period as instructed by a State or local Health Department.

We require the same of vendors, visitors and clients and ask that you please not come to a Pace location if any of the above apply to you or someone in your household. If necessary, we would be very happy to reschedule your visit.
