Reopening Safely – Preventing Novel Corona Virus Transmission at Work

Research is beginning to indicate that the virus may be transmissible through aerosol water droplets that are emitted simply by speaking, and that can remain suspended in the air long enough to circulate.   It also appears that there is currently no cost-effective way to screen workers for infection before they enter the workplace.  What is the state of the science?  What does it mean for employers and workers?   Who is likely to be most at risk?  What strategies are needed to ensure safe and sustainable reopening of indoor workplaces?  Will 2-meter distancing and the use of barriers and masks be enough?   How should responsibilities and costs associated with re-opening be divided between employers, workers and governments?
