As more news of the coronavirus spreading across the globe is reported, it seems timely to review some of the information available about Covid-19 (the formal name for the virus) and what steps employers should consider taking to protect themselves, their employees and their business to minimize the risk of contagion. In that regard, we suggest signing up on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website for regular email advisories. The agency issued an interim guidance several weeks ago and will regularly update that guidance as new information about Covid-19 becomes available. Common sense would dictate that employers encourage sick employees to stay home; send sick employees who come to work home immediately; encourage all employees to use respiratory etiquette and good hygiene habits (cover one’s month when coughing or sneezing, wash hands frequently, etc.) and that good environmental cleaning is being performed regularly. Employers may also want to familiarize themselves with some of the risk assessment protocols proposed by the CDC. There may also be other credible websites and/or news articles that can provide valuable information and suggestions to employers to better protect themselves and their business from virus-related employment problems. Finally, employers would be well-advised to evaluate their workplace emergency protocols and consider what, if any, modifications might be necessary in that regards. As always, we suggest you review your employee handbooks and other employment protocols with qualified counsel.
