The world changed in early 2020 when the Coronavirus hit the US and shut down the economy by requiring people to stay at home, or at least at a safe social distance. While the progress of the virus is being slowed by the measures we have taken, we need to resume social interaction and return to work. Unfortunately,with regained freedom comes the risk of another outbreak. Most experts agree we will need to substantially improve our abilities to manage this risk in order to return to normal while we pursue a vaccine.
What is Needed
Employers will need to create new processes to manage their employees entering and exiting the workforce as they interact and their risks of contracting the disease change. They will need to consider utilization of staff, especially those that require specific certifications or licensing, by identifying employees cleared to work. These capabilities will allow for proactive follow-up of exposures due to the high transmissibility of COVID-19, creating fewer exposures for staff and customers. And importantly, reduce negative outcomes for staff while reducing corporate liability that comes from lack of action. It bears mentioning that others, in addition to employers, may very well need to track exposure, such as volunteers, event attendees, and students.
