From the Document: "Existing heat illness prevention programs and policies can be tailored to the unique challenges of working during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. Heat stress is the total amount of heat the body encounters. It may come from a variety of indoor or outdoor sources such as: [1] Heat from work processes and machinery (e.g., forge); [2] Environmental temperatures, humidity, and lack of air movement (e.g., no wind or inadequate air circulation); [3] Internal metabolic processes (e.g., illnesses that create fever); [4] Heat generated by muscles from physical exertion."
