Partner Shares Guidance for Employers on What to Do if an Employee is Diagnosed with COVID-19
In an interview with SHRM, Workplace Safety Co-Chair Travis Vance shares guidance for employers who are facing a situation in which one or more of their employees has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Travis reminds employers that “[t]he most important thing is to have a plan and implement it immediately” to prevent the spread of the virus throughout the workplace. He goes on to explain what he refers to as the “6-15-48 rule,” which is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on determining which employees are most at risk of having been exposed to the virus so they can be properly notified. The article then goes on to describe the steps employers can take to satisfy their exposure-notification obligations.
