Educating Employees About COVID-19

It is important that employers educate employees on the seriousness of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and steps they can take to avoid the spread of the disease. Individuals experiencing symptoms such as fever (especially if greater than 100), cough (often dry), body aches/headache, shortness of breath, runny/stuffy nose, chills, and general fatigue must NOT report to work. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, call your healthcare provider. See CDC's guidelines if you are sick.

OSHA requires employers to identify, assess, and mitigate/prevent/control workplace hazards. As part of this process, businesses should communicate with their employees about COVID-19, recognizing that workplace environments differ across each business sector.
