COVID-19 information for employers

What To Do If An Employee Tests Positive?

Anytime someone tests positive for COVID-19, CUPHD calls and gives them guidance and next steps, including asking them and their close contacts to stay home to recover and to protect others from getting sick.

To expedite Case Investigation and Contact Tracing efforts, CUPHD is asking employees that test positive for COVID to notify their employers so that employers may initiate the process of identifying workplace exposures immediately.

Below is a step-by-step protocol that provides guidance to employers on how to identify workplace exposures and how to get that information to CUPHD. This protocol applies to employees as well as volunteers, contractors, or other people who work at the facility.
