Quick Take: Coronavirus' Economic Impact

Today, it’s too early to determine the long-term impact on supply chains, manufacturing, and the American economy. Given the importance of consumer spending to the American economy, much will depend on the confidence of the American public.

 

For the business community specifically, the CDC has issued a guide for employers to respond to the virus. Recommendations include: actively encouraging sick employees to stay home, flexible policies that permit employees to stay home to care for a sick family member, and respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene.
