If an employee starts to show signs of illness, depending on the severity, send them home or quarantine them to a specific place in the office. Staff with pre-existing health conditions should stay home due to being susceptible to infection or disease. If an outbreak does occur, have a flexible plan for your company, and be aware of what is taking place in the local area surrounding your business.
When talking about a flexible plan here are a few things to consider:
- Reduce the amount of staff at a location
- Consider allowing office staff to work from home if they don't need to be in the office
- Offer flex shifts to separate workers
- Reduce Hours
- Cross-train employees to perform tasks outside of their department if coworkers are not able to perform their duties
- Virtual Communication Applications
- Do you have a Voice over IP system that has a software phone?
- Is your phone system capable of forwarding calls to another number?

- Prioritize clients
