Important Coronavirus Information

In relation to COVID-19, the NDSC and NSC echo recommendations from OSHA and CDC, which include:

  • Practice proper infection control and sterilization measures
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid shaking hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick, and see a doctor immediately to be evaluated for COVID-19
  • If a worker becomes infected, insist that he or she fully recovers before returning to work
  • Employees who have traveled to areas with heightened levels of exposure should inform their employers immediately
  • Employers are urged to ask employees traveling home from Level 3 areas to self-quarantine for 14 days
  • Avoid sending staff on business trips to Level 3 areas as defined by CDC

The safety of workers is employers’ most vital task. For more information on preventing COVID-19, go to cdc.gov, OSHA.gov and who.int.
