As the news changes daily around COVID-19, one fact remains clear: Those with chronic health conditions are more susceptible to the virus, and they may have more severe symptoms and a more difficult recovery, too.  Employees may seek additional advice about how to perform their job duties during the coronavirus pandemic. Those who serve as caregivers or live in a household with someone who has an immune deficiency disorder may also show greater concern and request flexibility.
