Guidance for Large Businesses

Purpose

The Illinois Department of Public Health provides this guidance and recommendations to large businesses to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their business operations, workers, customers, and the public.  For employers who have already planned for influenza pandemics, COVID-19 planning will require updating to address the unique characteristics of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, including  how it is spread, prevention strategies, monitoring for symptoms, and instructions for cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Lack of continuity planning can hamper an employer’s ability to address challenges of COVID-19 with insufficient resources and workers who might not be adequately trained for jobs they may have to perform under pandemic conditions.
