An epidemic is declared a pandemic when it becomes outrageously unstoppable. The world is now menacing over one such pandemic—Coronavirus (COVID-19). This coverted virus had its initial cases in China, where it significantly gathered media attention and subsequently took deadly havoc over other nations, with the U.S. now reporting the highest cases after Italy.
Least to mention, the economy has seen a major fallback in years, and the ones to be affected are the employers. People are beginning to worry about susceptibility to the virus, including in the workplace. The question of interest to employers is what they can do about protecting their workplaces from this virus. Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all answer. The right choice will depend on the type of workplace, the job the employee performs, and the employer's tolerance for legal risks (to name just a few of the considerations an employer would take into account).
