Salt Lake City, May 26, 2020—Today, Leavitt Partners released “Understanding the Coronavirus & Situational Characteristics: A Framework for Individuals and Businesses for Mitigating Risk,” a white paper informed by contagion principles of the virus that provides opportunities for creative interventions. The paper walks through virus transmission and key principles for reducing spread, as well as assessing situational characteristics to mitigate risk of transmission. The framework provided is intended to be used in accordance with established data and public health practices.

The paper offers a framework for:

  • Understanding the virus and its contagion principles
  • Identifying and understanding the core principles for mitigating the spread of the virus
  • Applying these principles based on situational characteristics of unique environments

While public health officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other government entitites continue to provide guidance as more is learned about the virus, this framework can help individuals, businesses, and governments apply existing guidelines to a broader range of unique environments and interactions. Understanding how the virus spreads and applying these principles can help to evolve COVID-19 strategies and implement risk-mitigating strategies while re-engaging in the economy. If we are attentive to our environments and react appropriately, we can continue to make progress and mitigate risk as much as possible.
