Covid 19 - Advice

COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Kelly And You

Countries around the world are reporting outbreaks of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). While this news is troublesome, there is no reason to panic. The health and safety of our employees is a top priority for Kelly, so we want to share some important information with you. We are following guidance outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Personal Travel Guidelines 

If you have visited a high-risk area such as China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, or Japan, or believe you may have come in contact with someone who has visited these areas or who has the virus, please advise your local Kelly representative and contact your local Department of Public Health for advice. Staff at the local Department of Public Health will provide you with information on coronavirus and advise you on what to do if you become sick. The Department of Public Health will advise on whether self-quarantine is required or not.

What you can do

To limit the spread of germs and prevent infection, practice healthy habits:

  • Wash your hands frequently

  • Cover your mouth if you cough/sneeze

  • Maintain social distancing

  • Stay home if you are sick and contact your local Department of Public Health for further advice when you have symptoms

Symptoms may include

  • A fever

  • A dry cough

  • Tiredness

  • Shortness of breath / difficulty breathing.

For additional information about the COVID-19 virus, including an updated list of high-risk countries, please refer to kellyservices.com.
