On March 10th,  the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it is postponing most foreign inspections through April, effective immediately. Inspections deemed mission-critical will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The agency reached this decision as a result of travel advisories involving U.S. Government employees as well as restrictions imposed on foreign visitors by certain countries.

Employers are responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak in a variety of ways. There is no one correct way to respond, and there is no one-size-fits-all policy that must be implemented. However, there is no doubt that given the rapid spread of the outbreak in the United States and globally, employers must now take steps to help keep their employees safe.

At this time, most people in the U.S. have little immediate risk of Coronavirus (COVID - 19) exposure, as the virus is not currently widespread across the country. Compared to the seasonal flu, COVID – 19 is less transmissible since transmission primarily occurs once symptoms are present and stops when symptoms subside.
