Employers can use these strategies to limit exposures to COVID-19:

  • Actively encourage employees to stay home if they are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19:
  • Give employees, customers, and visitors what they need to clean their hands and cover their coughs and sneezes
  • Perform routine environmental cleaning
  • Allow employees to work from home if possible; plan for extended working from home
  • Protect employees at higher risk for severe illness through supportive policies and practices
  • Implement social distancing for those at work:
    • Increase physical space between onsite workers
    • Stagger work schedules
    • Limit in-person meetings
  • Ensure flexible leave policies for staff who need to stay home to care for others
  • Limit travel and advise employees if they must travel to take additional precautions and preparations
