Amid the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, you likely have questions and concerns about public health and the ramifications to your business. As an insurance broker trusted by our clients and their families, companies and employees, we offer these resources to help answer your questions.
With the amount of information about COVID-19 circulating, we believe the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to be the authorities on this topic and recommend them as a first resource for answers. OSHA is a resource for employers for preventing exposure to and infection with COVID-19 and offers guidance on preparing workplaces, enforcement of safety regulations, hazard recognition and safety standards. The CDC is a resource for individuals with the latest information about COVID-19 infection prevention, symptoms and treatment, reported cases and containment standards including travel, schools and community events.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and remain committed to keeping our community healthy and providing our clients the support you need. Read a message from our Chairman & CEO Rusty Reid. Contact us if your questions are not answered by these resources.
