Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Businesses and Employers

Greetings Business Partners, The Whiteside County Health Department (WCHD) is notifying local businesses about the CDC Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). This interim guidance is based on what is currently known about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).


CDC will update the interim guidance as needed and as additional information becomes available. We encourage you to contact WCHD should you have questions and use the IDPH hotline created for COVID-19 (1-800-889-3931 or email [email protected]). At this time, no confirmed cases have been identified in the Northern Illinois Region, including Whiteside County.


This information has been compiled directly from the CDC website. In addition, prior to a large-scale outbreak, WCHD recommends making plans for video/ audio conferencing to reduce in-person meetings and policies to allow certain employees to work from home if they are caring for ill family members.
