Tips on Dealing With COVID-19 in the Workplace

A lot is still unknown about this particular strain of coronavirus. Much of the current knowledge is based on what we know from similar coronaviruses. What we do know is that the virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading from person-to-person and precautions need to be taken to prevent the spreading of the virus. Below are some tips you should implement at your workplace to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy. Updates are available on CDC’s COVID-19 web page.

Workplace Tips

Perform Routine Environmental Cleaning: Remember to routinely clean frequently touched surfaces in the workplace. Doorknobs, workstations, and countertops should be cleaning with normal cleaning agents, and should be used as directed on the label.

Take Steps To Ensure Safety if Traveling: Be sure to check the CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices for guidance on each country you will be traveling to. Some countries have been affected more severely than others, and this should be taken into account when traveling abroad.

Dealing With Sick Employees: If an employee appears to be suffering from a respiratory illness, (symptoms include, coughing, shortness of breath, etc.) they should be sent home immediately. Sick employees should take care of covering there nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing. If going home is not an option, sick employees should be separated to help prevent the spread of the illness.

Encourage Staying Home When Sick: The best thing to do when sick is to stay home.  Preventing the spread of any illness is of the utmost importance. If you have any symptoms of acute respiratory illness, you should notify your supervisor and stay home.
