About the Program

The World Health Organization has declared the Coronavirus a public health emergency. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has indicated that the spread of the Coronavirus is an emerging and rapidly evolving situation.

In the midst of this ever-changing public health emergency, employers must be careful not to under-react or over-react, while being sensitive to employee anxiety surrounding it. Employers should implement plans now, but the plans must be sufficiently agile to change with the trajectory of this public health emergency that has not only human but also business continuity consequences.
