Wondering what other CFMA members are doing, or are considering doing, relative to any prep work we could possibly do related to the Corona virus.
Is there anything we can be, or should be doing at this point to prepare in the event this turns more serious in the US?
All comments welcome

Hi LynI recently found a section on the CDC website, specific to recommendations for businesses and employers - Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), February 2020
NPR had a blog post on this regarding individual preparation. One point related to work environments – allow people to work from home to reduce contact points.

CFMA Members,With a growing death toll and a rise in the number of reported cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), efforts to contain its spread have already resulted in business interruption and supply chain disruption. Although lines of insurance such as workers' compensation, health and life may cover coronavirus-related claims, we do not expect this to be the case for business interruption losses. We provide a summary of expected property and casualty insurance outcomes relating to core coverages in the link below. However, we encourage our clients to file first-party claims if losses are sustained, third-party liability claims if such claims are presented to our clients, and workers' compensation claims if claims are presented by employees, regardless of our guidance on the likelihood of coverage. http://www.cottinghambutler.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Coronavirus_Property-Casualty-update-from-Cottingham-Butler.pdf
Attached is some information to help you better understand the virus, what to do if you are sick and some ways to help protect yourself.We are also seeing an increased number of attempted phishing attempts. Cyber criminals are using the coronavirus epidemic in their attacks. We have been made aware of e-mails purporting to be from the World Health Organization (WHO). These e-mails prompt you to enter your e-mail address and password to get helpful safety advice - and doing so, you inadvertently give the crooks access to your e-mail. I would advise putting this on the radar of your staff.
Our team is involved in multiple conversations with our partners around the globe in regards to the virus and the exposures businesses could potentially face. We will continue to keep you updated with information that we feel is valuable and can help.
