What is a “Twindemic”??
Along with a possible second wave of COVID-19, we are now approaching flu season—identified as a “twindemic”. Health experts say that even a mild flu season could overwhelm the healthcare system. While practicing prevention such as washing hands, disinfecting areas, and working at home may reduce the severity of flu season, there are no guarantees the flu will be mild.
Ways to continue to keep employees healthy include:
4. If employees are back at work, offer flu shots by a health care provider
5. Continue with prevention methods
In certain situations, employers can require employees to get a flu shot if their position would put others at a risk of exposure, such as in the healthcare field. Check with your healthcare provider about what resources are offered or contact Human Resource Solutions for more information.
