Webinar: The Business Impact of a  COVID-19 Positive Employee 

Business owners and managers have been forced to reexamine a number of daily operating procedures in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Protocols for reopening businesses in a safe and responsible manner have been delivered by State, local, and industry-specific agencies. 

What happens when you have followed all of the rules for the safety of your business, but an employee tests positive for COVID-19? What's the first step? How do you lead staff in a way that ensures you care about their safety? What/when do you tell customers?

These questions and more will be addressed by a panel of experts that have either lived through this operational nightmare, have developed plans to address these issues, or can provide a roadmap for those who have yet to develop a contingency plan for this type of staffing reality.

Panelists Include:

Amy Crabbe, Chief Operating Officer, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System

Jennifer Greene, Public Health Director, AppHealthCare

Todd Hendley, Manager, Ransom Pub & Event Venue

Monica McKinney, Environmental Health Specialist, AppHealthCare

Andrea Morton, Operations Manager, The Horton Hotel

Dr. Jim Street, Founder, Ridgeline Leadership
