Coronavirus Protection for You and Your Employees
We are still learning about the new coronavirus, but so far, the dedicated pages on the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website describe it as a very serious public health threat, based on current information, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV to the general American public is considered low at this time.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has not declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Nevertheless, employers and individuals should monitor the CDC site, the World Health Organization and the OSHA websites dedicated to providing specific information about the evolving coronavirus outbreak.
