When news was initially released that Wuhan, China was impacted by the coronavirus, EI immediately launched a series of weekly educational blogs in mid-January highlighting pragmatic occupational health and industrial hygiene practices which minimize the possibility of coronavirus transmission in the workplace.

1.  Business Contingency Plans to include coronavirus pandemic planning
2.  Respiratory Protection – N95’s vs. Surgical Masks
3.  Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – Monitoring/corrective measures to minimize airborne COVID-19
4.  Cleaning & Disinfection – Cleaning, Disinfection and Verification Protocol as well as optimal EPA List N disinfectants and the importance of their proper application
5.  Employee Medical Screening – Detailed Guidance for identifying potential carriers of COVID-19
6.  Reopening Business – Guidelines for Minimizing Occupational COVID-19 Transmission as Social Distancing is Relaxed
7.  Training Students in the Era of COVID-19
8.  Industry Sector-Specific Guidelines for Re-Opening Our Nation’s Businesses
9.  COVID-19 Recovery Guidance: Water System Restart from No- or Low-Occupancy Operation
10. Going Back to Work – Considerations for Owners and Managers to Protect Employees, Tenants and Contractors 

The background information in EI’s blog series builds an excellent foundation for a comprehensive plan to minimize occupational transmission of COVID-19 when reopening businesses.
