The U.S. Department of Labor has issued two valuable documents relative to the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA): an FAQ for employers and guidance on paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave. In addition, the North Carolina Medical Group Management Association is hosting a free webinar about the implications of the FFCRA for practices on March 27.
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 https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html 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.
