2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Businesses/Employers – Updated

The Nevada County Public Health Department (NCPHD) is offering this resource to provide general information about the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV ) and COVID-19 (the illness caused by the virus), recommend strategies for employers to use to prevent workplace exposures to acute respiratory illnesses, including novel coronavirus, and to guide the management of employees who have recently returned to Nevada County from an area with known transmission of the novel coronavirus or who have had a known exposure to a laboratory confirmed case. This guidance is based on directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who are charged with the management of the response to the novel coronavirus across the UnitedStates.

Businesses and employees in Nevada County may be concerned about the current outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus and COVID-19. The CDC is working hard to learn as much as possible about 2019-nCoV so that we can understand more about how it spreads and better characterize its associated illness. NCPHD will continue to develop and update guidance and education materials as available information evolves.
