State, county, or city mask mandates:
Although much of the country is reopening, some areas still have restrictions in place
. If a city, state, or county has a mask mandate in place, or if the work order requests that a mask be worn and the provider arrives on-site and fails to wear a mask, the work order can be canceled, and the buyer can dispute the fee.
Site mask mandates:
Mask requirements in areas that do not have a current mask mandate should be listed in the scope of work and on the list of required equipment. If the mask requirement is included in the scope and the provider arrives on-site and fails to wear a mask, the buyer can cancel the work order and dispute the fee.
Please note that individual businesses may be enforcing mask mandates. Companies are asked to verify and include the mask requirement in the scope of work if the site requires a mask, but there is no mandate in place. Field Nation recommends keeping a mask on-hand in the event the site requires one. Here’s a resource to understand where the CDC recommends wearing a mask indoors, and when it is optional for vaccinated individuals
On-site vaccination requirements:
Some work order locations require that on-site contractors provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Field Nation is making it easy for buyers to identify which providers are willing to show proof of vaccination when they arrive to site. You can learn more about this feature here
If you indicate you are willing to show proof of vaccination on-site, you may be eligible for additional work in locations where vaccinations are required. Buyers will be able to filter for providers who are willing to show proof of vaccination and view it in your profile.
This feature is completely optional, and will not require you to upload proof of vaccination. If a work order requires proof of vaccination on-site and you do not provide proof of vaccination after stating you would, this may result in a quality event.
COVID-19 testing results:
For sites that require a negative COVID-19 result, we recommend that the company include the requirement in the scope of work within the work order. The work order should include the testing requirement, whether it can be substituted for a vaccination, and any timing requirements.
Field Nation is not issuing at-fault PQAP infractions for failure to show a negative COVID-19 testing result at this time.
Due to healthcare and privacy regulations, Field Nation does not permit, accept, store or review any health-related documents, including COVID-19 vaccination documentation or COVID-19 test results.
