As the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses struggle to reopen. In order to reopen safely, employers will need support in facilitating employees returning to work, including dealing with testing protocols, business-specific guidance, and workplace modifications to reduce the potential for workplace transmission. Expert faculty lay out a roadmap to prepare occupational physicians and other health professionals to answer the specific scientific, technical, and practical management questions that employers and workers will be asking during the reopening and resumption of operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Symposium covered a comprehensive approach to returning to work during the pandemic, the biological science of viral transmission, as well as industry-specific guidance that can be applied to workplace environments. It also discussed the role that medical, safety, and industrial hygiene plays in safely returning employees to the workplace.
