COVID-19: What Nonprofits Need to Know About Coronavirus


Over the past few weeks, coverage of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has dominated the news cycle. While the world has responded with swift mobilization, it is difficult to plan for the effect an outbreak could have on your community. Thankfully, infectious disease experts in Maryland and around the globe have developed advice on how to prepare for an outbreak, both personally and in the workplace.




Some of the advice provided by the Health Department for healthcare professionals is also relevant to all of us:

  • Encourage basic infection control practices such as hand hygiene, environmental cleaning, respiratory hygiene, and cough etiquette
  • Ensure non-punitive sick leave policies
  • Strong internal and external communication
