- Redesigned how they work and move in their facilities: They’ve redefined how they work and move around in their facilities to respect social distancing guidelines, including spacing out their work areas to abide by the recommended six feet of social distancing, redefining the use of common areas, and limiting maximum capacity for their spaces.
- New personal health & safety training: They’ve created trainings for their team around new safety standards and expectations, how they’ll work and move around in their facilities, as well as steps to ensure their health and safety, and that of their teammates. In line with Arizona guidance, their team will wear face masks in Waymo facilities or vehicles (unless a person is driving alone in the vehicle).
- Increased cleaning and disinfection: They’ve deep cleaned their facilities and, in partnership with AutoNation, are conducting multiple daily cleanings of their vehicles.
- Health monitoring: They’re working with an occupational healthcare provider to screen all individuals before they enter their facilities.
They’re taking a thoughtful and measured approach towards bringing their driving operations back on the road. They’ll begin driving in other cities in the days and weeks to come, including San Francisco, Detroit, and Los Angeles, and the resumption of their driving operations in these locations will similarly be guided by ensuring the safety and health of their team in line with CDC and state and local guidance.
