For Employers: Coronavirus and Travel: a Complicated Business Decision.
The 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak (also known as COVID-19) causes respiratory illness and can spread from person to person. There have been thousands of deaths reported globally, making the coronavirus deadlier than SARS. Coronavirus infections have been reported in dozens of countries. Individuals are being extracted from and departing China and the region, and pandemic fears have also affected shipping and travel around the world. Concerns about the coronavirus have closed factories and forced quarantines throughout China – delaying and even stopping manufacturing and deliveries.
The number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S continues to rise, affecting employers and employees in every industry, from hospitality to manufacturing to health care. What should employers consider in making decisions? This Alston & Bird webinar will review advice we are giving clients related to:
- Travel, both foreign and domestic
