Employers Can Show Concern About Measles


Howard Mavity’s article “Employers Can Show Concern About Measles” was featured in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on February 11, 2015.

Georgians have learned that a child with measles has been admitted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a provider well-equipped to handle the case. Less clear is whether any unvaccinated persons were exposed as the child traveled through Georgia. Yet even if no additional cases are reported in this state, employers already are being bombarded with questions from concerned employees.

In the article, Howard addresses the rising concerns of employers regarding the resurgence of Measles in the workplace.

Howard advises companies to remain calm and show concern for employees. Advise them you’re monitoring the situation. Regularly share useful public health advice and updates. Try to address employee concerns through education, before they become legal problems.
