This morning, Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall signed a declaration of a State of Local Emergency to prepare for the potential spread of COVID-19. While there are no known cases of COVID-19 in Salt Lake City, it is important that we act preemptively. To help prepare, the livestream “Corona Virus Employer Information Session” presented by the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development provided some great employer guidance. Here’s our recap of that session:
First and foremost, our community is focused on health of individuals and populations. It is going to take everyone – business and government alike to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at risk.
We must also focus on the health of our businesses and as leaders, remain sensible and stay informed on the challenge ahead. The CDC has interim guidance for business and employers. The Salt Lake Chamber has posted some helpful employer resources for the corona virus (as well as the State of Utah) and the employer information session is posted here.
For any questions, call Utah’s Coronavirus Information Hotline: 1-800-456-7707
