This webpage provides information for workers and employers about the evolving coronavirus outbreak first identified in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. The information includes links to interim guidance and other resources for preventing exposures to, and infection with, the novel coronavirus—now officially named COVID-19. Background information on the pandemic is provided, as well as information on elevated risk for employees who work in healthcare, deathcare, laboratories, airline operations, border protection, solid was and wastewater management, and travel to areas where the virus is spreading. Links are then provided to resources that discuss hazard recognition, how Office of Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards apply to protecting workers from COVID-19, medical information about COVID-19 and its diagnosis and treatment, and strategies for preventing worker exposure to COVID-19 in each of the elevated risk fields.
