As an employer, you want to keep in mind that your employees value and respect the precautions being taken to protect them. You want to be sure to approach all conversations factually and not use terms like “I think” or “I feel”. Be sure your employees are aware that work is still a priority, but also take into consideration and prioritize their needs and their health. Be flexible with your employees and considerate if they fall ill or are overwhelmed by the circumstances.
