The‌ ‌holiday‌ ‌season‌ ‌is‌ ‌upon‌ ‌us,‌ ‌along‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌third‌ ‌wave‌ ‌of‌ ‌COVID-19‌ ‌infections.‌ ‌Family‌ ‌gatherings‌ ‌may‌ ‌look‌ ‌different‌ ‌this‌ ‌year‌ ‌with‌ ‌‌fewer‌‌ ‌Americans‌ ‌planning‌ ‌to‌ ‌travel,‌ ‌but‌ ‌employers‌ ‌can‌ ‌still‌ ‌expect‌ ‌some‌ ‌employees‌ ‌to‌ ‌see‌ ‌loved‌ ‌ones‌ ‌and‌ ‌travel‌ ‌across‌ ‌state‌ ‌lines‌ ‌to‌ ‌celebrate.‌ ‌Whether‌ ‌your‌ ‌workforce‌ ‌is‌ ‌remote,‌ ‌in-person‌ ‌or‌ ‌a‌ ‌hybrid‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌two,‌ ‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌for‌ ‌employers‌ ‌to‌ ‌remain‌ ‌vigilant,‌ ‌be‌ ‌prepared‌ ‌to‌ ‌answer‌ ‌questions‌ ‌and‌ ‌share‌ ‌accurate‌ ‌health care‌ ‌information‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌their‌ ‌employees‌ ‌stay‌ ‌safe‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌coming‌ ‌months.‌ ‌
