About the Online Virus Awareness and Spread Prevention Class

You have likely found this course because of a requirement by an employer or school to complete a Virus Awareness and Spread Prevention Class. Many employers and educational institutions encourage or require that their workers and students receive regular training on viruses, especially during a pandemic such as the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This training is generally provided when starting a new job, when attending a new school, when returning to work or school, when regulations or recommendations are updated, and when new or modified tasks or procedures may increase the potential exposure to viruses.

This Virus Awareness and Spread Prevention Class provides important information on how to live, work, and attend school safely during a pandemic with a focus on COVID-19 and presents meaningful content informed by research, recommendations, and data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and World Health Organization (WHO).
