Staying Safe During the Coronavirus Outbreak
Covid-19 is a world disaster. While on lockdown, many of us have the ability to control our exposure in public places like grocery stores and parks. But what about your place of employment? Do you risk contacting Covid-19 while you are at work? If you’re trying to avoid getting sick or being exposed while working, is your job at risk?
