Our economy has been put to the test. But El Pasoans and our businesses are strong. Welcome to a community of businesses committed to surviving together.
Dozens of El Paso businesses are providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to their employees to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Sourcing it can be difficult. The Medical Center of the Americas is curating an up-to-date list of vendors providing PPE.
Employers can assist in preventing and slowing the spread of COVID-19 while re-opening and sustaining services during the ongoing COVID-19 response. A comprehensive business response plan to COVID-19 should be specific to your workplace, identify all work areas and tasks that may provide potential exposure to COVID-19, and include control measures to eliminate or reduce exposures to COVID-19. Your plan should routinely take into account the level of disease transmission within the community, and be revised as needed, including discussing any changes to your plan with your employees.
