NIH Launches Website for Coronavirus Workers

The National Institutes of Health has launched a website with important educational resources for coronavirus workers dealing with the spread of COVID-19.

With new supplemental funding from Congress, the National Institutes of Health is creating a COVID-19 virtual safety training initiative for frontline responders including emergency medical personnel, firefighters, law enforcement officers, environmental cleanup workers, high-risk custodial service workers, food processing and delivery workers, water and sewage treatment workers, sanitation workers, and health care facility employees.

Joseph “Chip” Hughes, who has led the NIH for 31 years, said, “These men and women are so dedicated and as they work so hard to serve and protect the public during this COVID-19 pandemic, I want to make sure they know how to protect their own health too. We don’t need them getting sick, or taking the virus back to their families or their communities.”
