The World Health Organization and the United States have declared the coronavirus a public health emergency. As a result, businesses will need to prepare for the impact the coronavirus may have on the workplace.  Because the virus has an incubation period of at least two weeks and can be transmitted person-to-person, it has deadly potential. Join us for an informative session to help businesses be ready to deal with a potential outbreak.

This session will cover:

  • What is the coronavirus and what are the symptoms?
  • What are the best safety and health practices in the workplace?
  • What are the elements of a pandemic business continuity plan?
  • What are the truths and rumors of the coronavirus?
  • What are our government agencies doing?
