What can we all do?

While the full economic impact of the virus is far from being known, we recognize that workers who rely on hourly wages, freelance work or gig-economy jobs do not have the safety-net resources of paid sick days and other employer benefits — meaning they will likely suffer a heavier economic burden should they or someone they care for fall ill.

Follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and take sensible precautions, especially while traveling.
