The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have developed interim guidance to help manufacturing facilities manage their COVID-19 response.

The CDC recommends that employers supplement workers' normal and required job training (e.g., training required under OSHA standards) with additional training and information about COVID-19, including recognizing signs and symptoms of infection and ways to prevent exposure to the virus.

Training should include information about how to implement the various infection prevention and control measures recommended here and included in any infection prevention and control or COVID-19 response plan that an employer develops. OSHA provides additional information.
