The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a document intended to help employers maintain a safe and healthy workplace in the wake of the new coronavirus outbreak.

“Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19” is a 32-page-long online document prepared by OSHA with the help of the United States Department of Health & Human Services.

The document provides information on COVID-19 and explains how a COVID-19 outbreak could impact a workplace. It also provides tips on how to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) exposure to employees and identifies jobs that are at higher risk of that exposure.
