Lead by example

  • Employers and supervisors can lead by example, by getting vaccinated themselves and encouraging their staff to do the same.
  • Educate employees about COVID-19 vaccines through in-house communications tools like newsletters, emails, or break room posters.
  • Encourage employees to stay home when not feeling well. Businesses can interrupt the spread of flu through leave policies that provide paid sick leave and staying home when sick.
  • Remind employees to take everyday preventive steps like covering coughs and sneezes, and washing hands to reduce the spread of germs.
