Outbreaks such as the coronavirus (COVID-19) are unique in that the CDC and other health professionals recommend people stay home from work for extended periods of time if they have developed COVID-19 or were potentially exposed to the virus. Organizations need to be prepared to continue normal operations with a potentially large percentage of their staff working remotely, possibly for weeks or more, particularly staff who have traditionally not been remote workers.
