Dear Team,

As you have likely heard, a new variant of the COVID-19 virus, called Omicron, has emerged in many parts of the United States and has raised immediate concern among medical experts. While they study how easily Omicron spreads, whether it causes more serious illness than the Delta variant, and how well our existing vaccines will respond, I wanted to write to you to let you know what steps [Company name] will be taking now to protect your health and the health of our community.

Make no mistake: We are in a much better place than we were a year ago. We have a better understanding of how to protect ourselves. And we have free, safe and widely available vaccines that medical experts believe will prevent serious illness. The progress we have made will not be lost—especially not if we take steps to get vaccinated and to control the spread of the virus through regular testing and wearing masks.

Following the advice of public health experts, [Company name] will take the immediate following steps:

Your manager will send more details about each of these steps, but I wanted you to hear from me about our commitment to a healthy workplace.

Throughout the pandemic, we have followed the advice of public health experts to stay ahead of the curve and keep our workplace as safe as possible, and I’ve been proud of your response at every phase. The Omicron variant calls on us to renew our commitment to a healthy workplace, and I’m confident we will meet this call together.

Thank you for always prioritizing the health and safety of yourselves and each other.

Yours sincerely,


President/CEO, Chief Medical Officer, or other trusted leader
