The COVID-19 virus is having a profound impact on the daily lives of all Americans, especially audiologists who serve a large senior population or who live or work in a heavily affected community or geographical are.

First, audiologists should educate themselves on the virus and its effects and consider implementing the CDC guidance, specifically, workplace school and home guidance.  This site offers the most up to date, definitive information on COVID-19 and its mitigation.

  • Do you have business interruption insurance and, if so, how does it address public health emergencies?
