CDC Resources

The CDC provides valuable resources for businesses and employers regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

For the most detailed and up-to-date recommendations from the CDC, visit: Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers. Businesses should also review OSHA’s Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 (PDF) workbook.

Recommended strategies for employers to use now:

  • Actively encourage sick employees to stay home.
  • Emphasize staying home when sick, respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene by all employees.
  • Perform routine environmental cleaning.
  • Additional Measures in Response to Currently Occurring Sporadic Importations of the COVID-19:
    • Employees who are well but who have a sick family member at home with COVID-19 should notify their supervisor and refer to CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
    • If an employee is confirmed to have COVID-19, employers should inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Employees exposed to a co-worker with confirmed COVID-19 should refer to CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure
