Additional Steps for Employers:

  • Ask employees who are sick to stay home when sick. Symptoms of COVID-19 include: Fever, cough and shortness of breath and appear 2- 14 days after exposure.
  • Ensure that sick leave policies are flexible and be sure that employees are aware of these policies.
  • Do not require a healthcare provider's note for employees who are sick. Healthcare providers may be extremely busy and unable to provide timely documentation.
  • Prepare for social distancing to prevent spread of disease. Consider allowing telecommuting, flexible work hours (e.g. staggered shifts) where possible.
  • Be aware that more employees may need to stay at home to care for sick children or other sick family members than is usual.
  • Prepare for employee absences resulting from personal illness, caring for ill family members, and school or childcare closures.
  • To prevent stigma and discrimination in the workplace, use only the guidance described by CDC to determine risk of COVID-19.
