You have one or more employees who tested positive for COVID-19. Now what?

Do not underestimate the importance of being ready for when, not if, an employee tests positive for COVID-19. If you plan for the when, then you will be prepared to follow your processes in place to help mitigate the risk of further exposure.

In this webinar, we will share what we learned first-hand what works and what does not in minimizing exposure and risk with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), physical distancing, important new HR policies to consider implementing. We will share how to customize policy creation for your organization, and how to take matters in your own hands to run a complete contact tracing process, and avoid reliance on government agencies.

We will share case studies to illustrate effective contract strategies. In one case, we will compare what one organization of essential workers did to eliminate COVID-19 exposures and how that same organization implemented best practices to keep exposures from happening at all at a different site.

Our HR Consulting leaders will also discuss how clear development and implementation of policies on PPE is essential, how detailed plans need to be to get buy-in from employees on safe practices both on and off the job, and how doing your own contact tracing will help speed up the process of identifying potential exposures within your organization.

Learn the concepts of COVID-19 case vs. exposure and the difference of quarantine vs. self-isolation, as they relate to COVID-19. You will quickly learn the basics of how to perform contact tracing, review important policies to develop and discuss what you can and cannot communicate to employees.

Remember, the Department of Health will reach out to all employees who were reported as having been diagnosed with COVID-19, but this may cause unwanted delays and may not address the specific needs of your organization. It is up to you to ensure your organization is ready to bring workers back into the workplace and how to keep them safe. And, just as important, what you need to do if an exposure is reported.
