If you had close contact with someone who is either Covid-19 positive or a person under investigation, you should monitor your health and call your healthcare provider right away if you develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 (cough, fever, shortness of breath). Close contact is defined as being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time. This kind of contact can occur either while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a health care waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case, or having direct exposure to infectious secretions from a COVID-19 case such as being coughed on.
You may be required to self-isolate for 14 days and will not be permitted to come into the workplace. Please notify your manager of your situation for further guidance.
Also see CDC guidelines for exposure in a health care setting.
