In light of the developments surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak (now known as COVID-19), we write to provide some guidance from here at SolutionWorx. It should be noted that this illness, while aggressive, ultimately belongs to the family of viruses that cause the common cold. The CDC latest fact sheet, available here https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/2019-ncov-factsheet.pdf, recommends the following ways of protection:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
In times of crisis, it is more challenging to obtain accurate and consistent data. Understanding the scope of an issue is critical to evaluate risk to your business, employees, and community.
