What should I do if my coworker is sick?

Hand washing might seem like a simple step, but based on what we know about this new coronavirus, it’s one of the best and most effective tools for limiting the spread. Daniel M. Parker, an epidemiologist and assistant professor at the University of California, Irvine, said “Coronaviruses are not particularly tough. Soap and water will kill them.” “Wet your hands under running water (can be warm or cold), apply soap, lather your hands well and scrub all over, then rinse your hands under running water,” Parker said in a statement.
