COVID-19, Zika, Ebola and Other Events
With the recent outbreak and spread of COVID-19, organizations need to understand the potential impacts of the disease and adopt policies and programs to mitigate repercussions on business operations while also ensuring measures are in place to ensure duty of care for their employees.
The Infectious Disease Response Site is designed as an online resource for clients and industry peers to access information and insight on risk exposures and human capital (duty of care) concerns emanating from an infectious disease event or outbreak. Organizations should consider strategies to prepare and safeguard their employees and businesses by reviewing their insurance policies for coverage provisions relating to COVID-19 or other infectious disease event. Other areas of focus for organizations should include business contingency risks, such as supply chain risk, business continuity, and operations, as well as duty of care exposures, such as employee communications, absenteeism and succession planning.
We encourage organizations to seek guidance from health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as local government entities for a comprehensive and timely view of the current situations as well as information about the nature and characteristics of the virus itself.
Infectious disease, by its very epidemiology, is an evolving topic. As such, this site will be refreshed periodically to capture new information and provide deeper insights into areas of focus for our clients. You may Submit a Question if you have specific inquiries on exposures or preparation guidance, and an Aon representative will follow up with you. Of course, you may reach out directly to your Aon account representative.
