SYMPTOMS of coronavirus infection include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and possible breathing difficulties. People who become infected with COVID-19 can have symptoms that range from mild to severe; the worst cases resulting in death.

Recommended strategies for employers to use NOW:
Place posters that encouragestaying home when sick, cough and sneeze etiquette and hand hygiene at the entrance and other workplace areas where they are likely to be seen.
Separate sick employees and encourage them to stay home
Emphasize respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene by all employees
Perform routine environmental cleaning and provide disposal wipes so commonly used surfaces (for example, doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks) can be wiped down by employees before each use.
Advise employees before traveling to follow (CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices on CDC website)
Additional measures in response to currently occurring sporadic importations of the COVID-19:
Employees who are well but who guide or have a sick family member at home with COVID-19 should notify their supervisor and refer to CDC for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
If an employee is confirmed to have COVID-19, employers should inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Employees exposed to a co-worker with confirmed COVID-19 should refer to CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
