Constructing the high-speed rail can’t be done from home, so to protect employees from COVID-19, workers are operating differently.
Diana Gomez is the Central Valley Regional Director with the High-Speed Rail Authority.
“They used to have big group safety meetings every morning,” Gomez said. “Instead of having the big group safety meetings they have smaller ones.”
There’s also a lot of hand washing and social distancing on the construction sites. Gomez said people don’t sit together during lunch like they normally would.
