HF Alert – Coronavirus Business Resources

 

The rapid spread of COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) is impacting daily lives and businesses across the country.  Below are some resources you may find useful as you consider how you and your company can best respond.

 

  • The U.S. Department of Labor has developed guidelines to protect workers from exposure to, and infection with the Coronavirus.  Their website may be viewed here.

 

  • The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) recently held a teleconference for manufacturers about how to deal with the ongoing crisis.  You may access the call here.

 

  • The NAM also provided a succinct synopsis of the President’s remarks regarding related travel and trade restrictions:

 

Following last night’s Oval Office remarks by President Trump on COVID-19, the White House released this proclamation announcing restrictions on travelers to the United States from countries in the EU Schengen Area. Those countries include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Specifically, the administration will ban entry into the United States by immigrants and non-immigrants who were physically present within the Schengen Area during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States. The proclamation is effective at 11:59 p.m. EDT on March 13 and will remain in effect until terminated by the President. Please note that these restrictions do not apply to U.S. goods imports from the European Union. According to the proclamation, “the free flow of commerce between the United States and the Schengen Area countries remains an economic priority for the United States, and I remain committed to facilitating trade between our nations.”
