On September 6, 2022, Kara M. Maciel, Eric J. Conn and Ashley D. Mitchell presented a webinar regarding What Employers Need to Know About the Monkeypox Virus.
On July 23rd, the World Health Organization declared Monkeypox a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. By late July, the U.S. surpassed 10,000 total cases, and the Biden Administration declared it a public health emergency. While the Monkeypox Virus is less transmissible than COVID-19 and rarely fatal in its current form, there are still workplace safety and health considerations employers will have to address.
Participants in this webinar learned:
- Background about the Monkeypox Virus, including common symptoms and modes of transmission
- Strategies for employers to prevent workplace exposures while complying with Federal and State level labor employment laws
- Employee communication strategies about this latest public health crisis
- Potential OSHA recordkeeping and reporting obligations
We are pleased to share these links to a copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar.
