BATON ROUGE – As more Louisiana businesses reopen and staff return to the workplace following the state’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order, many employers are looking for guidance on how to do so safely. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana has created an online, multimedia toolkit for Louisiana employers to address common questions and share information from medical directors and others.
Sample posters that can be displayed in workplaces to promote steps for health and safety, including wearing face masks, keeping six feet apart from others, washing hands often and staying home if you are sick.
Mental health resources for employees who may be feeling stressed, fearful or anxious.
Information from Blue Cross Health Economist Mike Bertaut on how to find affordable healthcare coverage through healthcare.gov, Medicaid, Medicare or private health plans, including short-term medical plan options for qualified individuals.
Protocol that Blue Cross medical directors developed for responding to employees who are diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19 and self-quarantine guidelines they can follow.
A message to employers from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana President & CEO I. Steven Udvarhelyi, M.D.
