COVID-19 and Businesses

Prevention is Key!

  • Follow the policies and procedures of the employer related to illness, cleaning and disinfecting, and work meetings and travel.
  • Stay home if sick, except to get medical care.
  • Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet away from fellow co-employees, customers, and visitors when possible.
  • Employees should inform their supervisor if they or their colleagues develop symptoms at work. No one with COVID-19 symptoms should be present at the workplace.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing noses, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
    • Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Ensure employees are socially distanced in the break room. When not eating or drinking, masks should be worn.
  • Smoking breaks should be taken alone.
  • After touching high-touch areas, wash or sanitize your hands.
