Return with Care
You’re expected to have answers. We can help.
Support your employees’ return to work and guide the decisions necessary for resuming your business operations with this collection of thought-leadership pieces, decision-making toolkits and resources.
Operational Toolkit for Businesses Considering Reopening or Expanding Operations in COVID-19
Through our partnership with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, we are pleased to offer access to their Operational Toolkit to help business owners determine their risk of COVID-19 transmission and how to reduce it. The toolkit can help your business calculate and understand the level of risk you have, the modifications to operations you can implement, and the mitigation measures that would be useful to include in your procedures.
We’ve also created a quick guide version of the comprehensive toolkit.
This recorded webinar features experts from the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security as they provide:
- An overview of the pandemic to date, including a review of key terms (e.g. confirmed/probable case, cluster, community transmission, contact tracing, public health and social measures, isolation, quarantine etc.)
- Insights on decision making and risk management
- A review of the online Business Operational Toolkit
Member Support Resources
As employers begin to plan for reopening or retooling business operations during COVID-19, we recognize this can cause uncertainty for employees. To help address some common concerns, we have assembled a package of member communication resources you can share with your employees. Topics include stress reduction, mental health resources, healthy habits, CareFirst Video Visit, and other CareFirst support services.
