12. Just an idea to throw out....

* Make it a requirement for employment at your company that if any employee has or believes they have a contagious disease, they are required to reveal it to company HR.
* Company HR would be provided access to one or more medical professional with which they could consult on what action should be taken to avoid spread of the disease to others in the workplace.
* Company HR would then decide whether to reveal to other employees any risk and corrective and/or preventative measures required, but only after revealing that intent to the sick employee.

It's bad enough that this disease can have carriers that are asymptomatic but even worse when people deny their moral obligations to reveal when they're feeling sick.

It's probably best companies encourage and perhaps even insist their employees be frequently tested for pandemic-level diseases, and companies should pay any costs incurred.
