CDC's Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers

Plan, Prepare and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019.  The CDC's interim guidance may help prevent workplace exposures to acute respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, in non-healthcare settings. The guidance also provides planning considerations if there are more widespread, community outbreaks of COVID-19.  We recommend all Uxbridge businesses review this guidance and put recommendations in place to protect employees and customers.  Specific guidance is available for schools, childcare centers, community and faith-based groups, community events and more.
