CITOC Phase 1 Re-Entry Guidelines

CITOC has been in Phase 1 of Re-Entry in our offices for three weeks with great diligence. With a surge of positive cases of COVID-19 we will remain in Phase 1 and continue to deliver services prudently to protect our team members and clients. Below are CITOC procedures and guidelines regarding CITOC’s offices and visits to client sites.  If you have any specific procedures and policies, please notify us so we can communicate to our team.  Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.


At this time, we have split the CITOC staff into an in-office rotation.   Each team will only be in office with a few others in order to limit possible exposure.  Team members are in the office one or two days weekly while working remotely the remainder of each week.  In addition to a clean desk policy CITOC team members do the following upon entry and exit of our offices each day:

  • Take temperature upon entry – Employee with an elevated temperature will not be allowed in
  • Disinfected workstation upon arrival
  • Use hand sanitizer when going to and from common areas
