Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Alert

The CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new)coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in almost 70 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

 

The CDC calls this an “emerging, rapidly evolving situation,” and local governments need to be aware of the situation as it develops.

 

Here are resources to provide guidance on preventing the spread of the virus, appropriate occupational health measures, and recommended national and international protocols.

 

One of the resources is a model policy for your review and use (after consulting an attorney) to address the coronavirus and other possible outbreaks in the future.
