Recommended strategies in the workplace:

  • Like any contagious infection, employees who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are recommended to stay home from work; and seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen.
  • Wash hands frequently with warm soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Create plans if you may need to stay at home to care for a sick family member.
  • Be aware of your company’s s sick-leave policies and any revisions regarding the COVID-19 situation.
  • Remember your EAP benefits to help manage any anxiety or any uncertainty your are experiencing related to COVID-19.
