Where can I find California-specific coronavirus guidance for employers

The state of California's COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards provides guidance for employers to help them plan and prepare for reopening their business and to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers. 

In addition, California's government agencies have provided helpful information for employers at the following links.

The Employment and Development Department (EDD) offers benefit guidance on short-term disability, paid family leave and unemployment (including work share programs).

The Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) also provides Cal/OSHA and Statewide Industry Guidance on COVID-19.

The DIR also has FAQs on paid sick leave and other pay requirements, Safe Reopening FAQs for Workers and Employers and related safety information on CAL-OSHA requirements.

The Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) for San Francisco provides guidance on the city's paid sick leave ordinance.

The Labor and Workforce Development Agency has multiple resources for employers and workers, including a helpful chart on Benefits for Workers Impacted by COVID-19.

General information on the virus can also be found on the California Department of Public Health website.
