The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released guidance for employers regarding creating and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. The guidance suggests starting with creating a health and safety plan by identifying where and how workers might be exposed as well as ensuring the building is ready for occupancy by checking ventilation systems and identifying ways to increase air circulation. To isolate workers from hazard, the CDC recommends modifying furniture, meeting rooms, parking lots, entrance and exit points, break rooms and other areas of congregation as well as developing special consideration for elevators or escalators. Additionally, the guidance includes advice on training and communicating with staff about how to protect themselves while at work including using face coverings. It’s important to note that the CDC still recommends that employers encourage employees to stay home if they have symptoms or have been around an infected individual.
