Dear Customers and Stakeholders –
Following Governor Mike DeWine’s direction, we are asking our employees, employer members, injured workers, and stakeholders across the state to practice proper hygiene and other precautions to avoid potential contact with the yearly influenza as well as the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
I want to echo Gov. DeWine’s message to the public today: This is about prudent preparation. There are no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in Ohio, and we want to keep it that way. Our chief concern at BWC is always the safety and health of Ohio’s workforce. That’s why we’re reaching out to our customers and stakeholders to urge proper precautions and to ask you to share this information with your employees and customers, if any.
The governor has asked everyone to educate themselves about this disease and follow precautions advised by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health. For more information on the Coronavirus, visit coronavirus.ohio.gov.
Administrator/CEO, the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation
