So with clients turning to us for advice on how to handle issues relating to the coronavirus known as COVID-19, Sylvia Group has been ready with a comprehensive guide authored by Alera Group Director of Compliance Danielle Capilla, JD, and national Property & Casualty Practice Leader Mark Englert.

What you'll learn
In a guide titled "Coronavirus: Hope for the Best but Plan for the Worst," Danielle and Mark address basic advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and organize their guidelines into two basic categories: Employer/Employee Concerns and Insurance Concerns.
- group health plans;
- employee health; and
- human resources policies;
- employment practices; and
- employment law.
The second, Insurance Concerns, addresses what may and may not be covered by:
- Property Insurance;
- Travel Insurance; and
