Federal - Workplace Decision Tree and COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a workplace decision tree to assist employers in making reopening decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision tree walks employers through the following steps:

  • Whether they should consider reopening;
  • If they should reopen, then whether recommended health and safety actions in place; and 
  • If in place, then how employers can ensure ongoing monitoring and implementing suggestions.

If employers cannot answer “yes” to any of the aforementioned steps, then the CDC recommends that they reassess and meet the necessary safeguards prior to reopening. The CDC also reminds employers to check with their state and local health officials to determine the most appropriate actions while adjusting to meet the needs and circumstances of their local community.
