Welcome to Brisbane Chamber of Commerce

Signage Requirements Must Be Observed
Document Display Requirements for Businesses
In July, the Chamber sent out information regarding necessary documents that must be displayed at all entrances of a business. These are state-mandated documents that detail the business’ safety protocols for minimizing exposure of staff and customers to COVID-19. Failure to post these documents could result in a fine. Unfortunately across the county we have seen only approximately 30% of businesses comply with this requirement. Likewise, we have many businesses in Brisbane that have still not posted these signs.
In an effort to increase compliance, we want to remind you to post the following documents if you haven’t already:
Self-Certification Placard – Post this placard at all public entrances, list your local law enforcement agency in the department fields of this document, and include the Point of Contact information for the business.
Social Distancing Protocol – Use this form or post similar content.
Health and Safety Signage – Post these signs or a sign with equivalent information that lists all COVID-19 symptoms, 6-foot social distancing, sneeze and cough etiquette, physical contact etiquette, and face-covering requirement at every public entrance.
Industry Specific Health and Safety Plans – Develop a Health & Safety Plan (or complete an industry-specific Checklist), share with, and post for all personnel. If you are not regulated by Environmental Health Services, click here for industry-specific guidance resources, view the “Other Businesses” tab, or contact the State agency that regulates your business.
Industry Guidance for Businesses in San Mateo County
