COVID-19 Latest Updates and Resources

HR & Business Continuity Resources

CAI Resources

The human resources consulting organization CAI, a Curi partner, has compiled a Coronavirus Command Center full of resources that can help you with employee management and other human resources issues during this crisis.

Of special interest, they have a “Readying your Coronavirus Business Continuity Plan” resource that offers guidelines to help practices navigate disasters such as a pandemic.

In addition, they have published a guide to the HR implications of the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), including issues of paid and emergency leave, furloughs and layoffs, and FMLA. On March 25, CAI also published this alert on FFCRA, which includes key updates to the Act (e.g., a new start date for employer compliance with the law and a new FFCRA poster from the U.S. Department of Labor).

Sentinel Risk Advisors Resources

Curi’s partner Sentinel Risk Advisors has also created a COVID-19 command central with answers to common questions about business risk and insurance needs during this time. The site is updated regularly with the latest news, information, tools, and links to help businesses respond and recover from the pandemic.

Curi practices based in North Carolina have access to business insurance via Sentinel Risk Advisors.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
