With coronavirus cases on the rise, it is important that employers take proactive steps to minimize the risk of exposure in the workplace. The following are recommended steps:

  • Require face coverings and provide PPE
  • Promote physical distancing and reduce opportunities for face-to-face interactions
  • Incorporate frequent and enhanced cleaning/disinfecting of the workplace
  • Use symptom questionnaires/certification for employees
  • Enhance COVID-related training and policies
  • Designate a COVID-19 lead or coordinator

Employers should also be prepared for the unfortunate event of a positive or suspected case of COVID-19 in your workplace. You will need to take certain steps to mitigate risks of exposure to other employees. For additional information, please see information provided in our webinar on practical tips for COVID-related workplace issues.
