To curtail the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of your co-workers, clients, and other visitors to your offices, we suggest adopting CDC recommendations regarding when employees (even if asymptomatic) should stay at home.
- Before you travel, or make travel arrangements, you should consult the updated CDC Travel Health Notices list.
- Some state and local governments may require people who have recently traveled to stay home for 14 days.
Known Infection or Ongoing Contact
DO NOT COME TO WORK WHILE:
- You are ill with a laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19.
- You are in close contact with a person with a laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19 (close contact includes living with, caring for, or being an intimate partner of someone with a confirmed case). Refer to CDC guidance for measuring your own potential exposure.
- Recovered Illness or Contact with Confirmed Case of COVID-19
- DO NOT COME TO WORK for 14 days following the date of:
- Your full recovery from your own laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19 (we may request a note from a physician indicating your recovery).
- The full recovery of a person with a laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19 with whom you have ongoing close contact (close contact includes living with, caring for, or being an intimate partner of someone with a confirmed case).
- Your last close contact with a person with a laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19.
Symptoms of Respiratory Illnesses
If you have symptoms of the virus or other respiratory illness (including influenza), seek medical care, stay home and remain at home until at least 72 hours after being free of fever (100.4 degrees F or 38 degrees C) or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and it has been 10 days since state of symptoms.
Travel policies during coronavirus, both vacation and work related, have many employers scrambling on how to regulate processes for all employees. We are here to help you create a standard policy for your employees to help you continue to move forward during these uncertain times.
