The Same Precautions Used to Fight the Flu are Effective Against COVID-19

Scientists are still studying the novel coronavirus. But we know that the same precautions we take to reduce the spread of influenza work well against COVID-19.  Staying home when ill, keeping physical distance, and frequent hand washing are all important practices that work against many diseases, not just coronavirus.

Modeling and encouraging hygiene practices makes us all safer in the long run.  Consider what you can do around your workplace, school, housing community, or retail establishment to encourage the right kinds of behaviors.

Stop the Spread With Screening and Frequent Disinfecting

The best way to prevent the spread of coronavirus is for people who feel sick to stay home.  The CDC provides up-to-date guidance on the symptoms to watch out for, as well as printable signage in several languages that you can post at your facility.

Recent federal and state legislation has increased the availability of paid sick leave, often with the government picking up most or all of the tab.  Make sure employees and visitors know how important it is to stay home if they are feeling sick!

Social Distancing in the Workplace

The open office revolution has made working environments more dynamic and collaborative.  Unfortunately, open office plans are poorly suited to maintaining the physical distancing that is critical to reducing the spread of disease.
