COVID-19 Resources

A number of members are asking about resources for information and guidance about COVID-19 (coronavirus). This page provides links to accurate resources, sample guidance, and information publicly released by state and local government. It will be updated as needed. 

We encourage employers to review and follow CDC Guidelines to determine planning, preparation, and response to COVID-19. Employers should encourage employees experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to call their health provider for medical advice. Hospitals will not test persons who do not exhibit COVID-19 symptoms. Guidelines for testing for COVID-19 can be found here.
