Health and Safety

Updated as of March 20, 2020

As the novel coronavirus illness, COVID-19, situation evolves, the health and well-being of our employees, clients, and consultants are our top priorities. Oxford Global Resources is adhering to guidance from regional and local health authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are diligently monitoring this very fluid situation and we will continue to provide updates as the situation develops.

I'm an Oxford Consultant. What do I need to know?

Your health and safety are of utmost importance. Please follow the below guidelines.

  • Notify us immediately by submitting the form below and do not come to the workplace if you are exhibiting symptoms, have been subject to potential exposure, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have any other reason to believe you were exposed to the virus. You should also phone your healthcare provider right away.
  • Notify us immediately of travel to CDC level 3 or 2 countries and do not come into the workplace after such travel, before being cleared by the company.
  • You may be subject to up to 14 days of restriction from the workplace and may be required to supply a healthcare provider’s certificate to return to work.
  • If you are sick, stay home to avoid spreading germs. Please do not return to work until you are free of fever (100.4° F [37.8° C]) or greater, using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g., cough suppressants).
  • Do not come to the workplace if you have any flu symptoms or are otherwise ill. If you have symptoms of acute respiratory illness, you must be 24 hours symptom-free without the aid of medication before returning to work.
  • If you have specific health concerns about coming to one of our offices or a client facility, submit the form below, so we can work with you individually.
  • If currently on an assignment and your state or city issues a stay-at-home order, mandating all individuals stay inside their residences except as needed for essential services, please directly check with your client manager and advise us of whether they have approved you to Work From Home (WFH).
  • The ability to WFH on your assignment will depend on the specific client and assignment, and whether the client operates an essential business. We are here to help you make the transition to WFH, as applicable.

Please work with the client to understand and comply with their company’s specific policies and procedures surrounding COVID-19. For your reference, we’ve put together additional Coronavirus FAQs here.

I'm an Oxford client. What do I need to know?

We are here to help. Many of our consultants are equipped to work remote and we are working to support their needs in the event they quickly need to begin working from home due to a closure at one or all of your office locations. In cases where this is not possible, please reach out to us so that we can together determine the best way to continue to support your projects and ongoing business activities.

Consistent with CDC guidance, we have taken the following steps and asked our consultants to:

  • Notify us and not come to the workplace if they are exhibiting signs, have been subject to potential exposure, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have any other reason to believe they were exposed to the virus.
  • Inform us of travel to CDC level 3 or 2 countries and to not come into the workplace after such travel, before being cleared by the company.
  • Not come to the workplace if they have any flu symptoms or are otherwise ill. Consultants with symptoms of acute respiratory illness have been told to be 24 hours symptom-free without the aid of medication before returning to work.
  • Understand that they may be subject to up to 14 days of restriction from the workplace and may be required to supply a healthcare provider’s certificate to return to work.
  • If you have an Oxford Consultant on assignment and your state or city issues a stay-at-home order, mandating all individuals to stay inside their residences except as needed for essential services, your Oxford Consultant will reach out to you directly for the best guidance. We are actively supporting many of our consultants as they make the shift from an onsite to a remote work environment, where applicable. 

We have also advised our current consultants to work with you to understand and comply with your company’s specific policies and procedures surrounding COVID-19. If you currently have Oxford Consultants onsite, we ask that you share your company’s specific COVID-19 protocol with that individual, or team, as well as your Oxford Account Manager. This will allow us to work in tandem to support you and remain responsive to your business needs in a rapid manner.

For any additional questions, contact your Oxford Account Manager, or submit your questions or concerns to us, and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
