NTEU Closely Monitoring the Coronavirus


NTEU is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19), a respiratory disease detected across 60 locations internationally, including in the United States.

We have reached out to each of the 33 federal agencies where NTEU represents federal employees to request pandemic plans. We will post agency pandemic plans on this page as we receive them.

NTEU is in constant contact with our chapter leaders so that we can address workplace issues related to the coronavirus. As the situation evolves, watch for member messages and new resources on this page.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention

We strongly urge all federal employees to follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for everyday actions that help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:


  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick, and avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.


For more information and to help answer common questions, visit the CDC website for a wealth of resources.
