Over the last weeks, the COVID-19 crisis has rampaged across the entire world. Both European and international institutions have sprung into action and launched a series of major countermeasures.
COVID-19 spread can be emotionally challenging for many people and all segments of society – including employers and employees – should play a role to protect themselves and each other and help prevent further spread of the disease.
WHO and public health authorities around the world are taking action to contain the COVID-19 outbreak and are providing advice and updated information on COVID-19, and on how employers can protect their employees, what measures they should take in the workplace and other related factors.
The WHO has published multiple guidelines:
- Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19
- A guide to preventing and addressing social stigma associated with COVID-19
- Mental Health Considerations during COVID-19 Outbreak
