My company is an essential business—what can I do to help keep my employees safe while at work?


IMPORTANT: Let your employees know that they should inform you immediately if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or believe they have come in direct contact with someone with COVID-19, including a sick family member.

  • Encourage all employees to frequently wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.
  • Promote social distancing by avoiding any group/team meetings and utilizing video conferencing instead.
  • Add hand sanitizer stations to common areas, lobbies, and near highly-trafficked doors.
  • Ensure all soap dispensers are operational and filled (in bathrooms, kitchens, etc.).
  • Increase scope of sanitation and cleaning in common areas and among items that are commonly touched (e.g., elevator buttons, door handles, etc.).
  • Implement a schedule for deep cleaning or spray disinfecting if appropriate.
  • Post signage in common areas reminding employees of the CDC’s “Stop the Germs” guidelines.
  • Actively encourage any sick employees to stay home.
  • For more recommended strategies, please refer to the CDC’s Guide for Business & Employers.




What should I do if someone in my office tests positive for COVID-19?


  1. Notify your local Department of Public Health and the CDC.
  2. Notify your Property Manager.
  3. Remind anyone that was in close contact with the confirmed person to consider self-quarantining for 14 days.
    • 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 the 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.
