Dohn said they can help the business, and public health officials can talk to HR or public information officers and help with talking to other employees who may have been exposed.

“Don’t hesitate to give us a call. We want to make sure that especially our essential businesses are able to cope with this and keep going and not have a situation where you have one person that’s sick and then have another person that’s sick and then somehow it spreads before we know about it and catch it,” Dohn said.
