Strategies to keep you and your employees safe:

With the spread of COVID-19 to Louisiana, the following are some useful reminders to help reduce the risk of contracting communicable diseases, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Maintain social distancing from anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  • Practice respiratory hygiene, such as covering your month and nose when you cough or sneeze with a bent elbow or tissue.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.
  • Keep your work environment clean, using basic cleaning and disinfecting products when necessary.

How can your business be affected?

If Covid-19 becomes widespread in our community, have you thought about how your business might be impacted?  If customers cancel orders or an event, it could have a significant impact on operations.  Additionally, have you thought about whether employees are able to work remotely rather than coming to work or traveling.  All these factors can affect business; therefore, can impact cash flow. Hopefully, this virus will be contained or managed, but it is always wise to think ahead and be prepared.
