Planning for the future during the COVID-19 outbreak

When you become very ill and are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, a Declaration of Living Will can speak for you. This document, drafted when you are healthy and of sound mind, outlines the types of medical procedures and treatments you are wiling to undergo or not willing to undergo when you are essentially on your death bed.

Employers and Coronavirus

The CDC has provided interim guidance for businesses and employers to plan and respond to COVID-19.[5] The CDC will update the interim guidance as needed so employers should periodically check the CDC website for new information.

Sick employees should be actively encouraged to stay home. Employees who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are recommended to stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever (100.4° F or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines. Employees should notify their supervisor and stay home if they are sick. [More]
