Business Protections During and Post-Holiday Season ​

Q. With many of my employees planning to travel or get together with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, what can we as businesses do when they return to limit our risk of spreading COVID-19?

A. Although the holidays are traditionally the time for travel and family/friend gatherings, the rampant spread of the COVID-19 virus is causing TAG, CDC, and health departments across the U.S. to highly recommend against celebrations with persons outside of one’s immediate household (including other family members who may be traveling from afar).

TAG advises that you discuss holiday protections with your workers before the holiday. As the CDC’s Thanksgiving and COVID-19 webpage discusses, the CDC recommends that:

  1. Families limit gatherings

  2. Maintain six-foot distancing from those of different households

  3. Avoid direct contact (e.g., handshaking, hugging, etc.)

  4. Meet outdoors when possible (maintaining mask usage and distancing). See more recommendations from CDC.

Yet, as employees will continue to make their own decisions to gather and travel, businesses must also make plans to increase protections upon employee return. Some of these protective plans may include:

  • Increasing focus on wellness checks

  • Ensuring questions are asked about potential close-contacts, including contact with positive persons. This questioning should include all workers, whether or not they have traveled or gathered.

  • If and whenever possible, increase the physical distancing of employees.

  • Ensure that all workers are wearing masks – correctly (to cover nose and mouth to chin) – while onsite.

  • Discourage carpooling and public transit use, if feasible.

TAG does expect to see a significant impact of increasing cases, following the holiday. However, by stepping up and implementing actions, you can protect your workers and your business. Give TAG a call for further recommendations or assistance.
