For manufacturers that are considered essential and are remaining open, MAGNET: The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network, Northeast Ohio's Manufacturing Extension Partnership Ohio MEP partner, has some suggestions on how to keep employees virus-free while working. The guidance is as follows: All office teams work remotely sales team, marketing teams and finance teams as well as back-office. When this isn’t possible, spread out remaining staff as far as possible and hold not in-person meetings – use remote tools even room-to-room. People should keep 6 feet distance when they talk and even some things are being rearranged in the plant to accommodate others working 6 feet from one another if possible.  As this may become the new normal, any steps you take now to spread areas out will likely be good for the future too.
