A new report published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine outlines what businesses and other institutions can do to continue operations safely amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Employees and customers must do all the well-documented things that are known to help protect against the spread of disease: frequent hand washing, wearing masks, staying apart and making sure people stay home if they feel unwell. But the report advises employers to take disciplinary action against employees who do not comply with these guidelines.

The report, written by health lawyer Mark Barnes from Ropes & Gray LLP and Dr. Paul Sax, head of infectious diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, also advised employers to offer or extend sick leave benefits to encourage workers to remain at home when they feel sick.

Businesses can also place partitions or barriers between workers or between employees and customers and increase ventilation and air circulation, advises Barnes and Sax.

A staggered work schedule can make employees safer, as can accommodation for workers with a higher risk of getting a serious virus, including the option to work from home. Learning institutions must offer distance learning opportunities for students with underlying medical conditions.

There must be coordination between businesses and local governments about reopening schools, day care and day care centers.

“The resumption of child care and school operations is an important factor, because many employees are unable, given the family situation, to return to work if education and child care for children and parents or family members with disabilities remain closed,” the report said.

The use of mass transportation, as well as social, religious and leisure time for workers outside working hours are other big challenges that businesses face when they reopen, according to the report, which notes that many businesses have adopted daily temperature checks and health questionnaires to determine if employees or the customer represents the risk. For colleges or residential schools, the report recommends institutions provide a place where students can isolate before traveling home.

Regarding workplace testing, the report notes “promises to control transmission at work but also has serious limitations,” adding that when widely available, “antigen tests may have greater specificity but may have lower sensitivity” than with another test. Once there is an increase in testing capacity, employers can also use contact tracking at work, the report said.

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
