OSHA urges employers to develop plans to deal with coronavirus

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued guidance on how employers can address the novel coronavirus that has infected more than 116,000 people worldwide, saying that ignoring its rapid spread could result in a “cascade of failures.”
