NEW : CDC Guidelines Regarding Responses To Employees Exposed To COVID-19
On April 8, 2020, CDC issued new guidelines aimed at getting workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 back to work faster. Under previous guidance, workers were told to stay at home for 14 days if exposed to someone with a confirmed/suspected case of COVID-19.
The new guidelines allow critical workers (see list here) in 16 sectors (i.e. financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, others) who have been exposed to COVID-19 (i.e. exposure to a household contact, close contact within 6ft of an individual with confirmed or suspected COVID-19) to continue to work as long as they remain asymptomatic and additional precautions are being taken to protect themselves and those around them including:
Pre-screen: The worker’s temperature should be taken prior to the individual entering the work facility to assess symptoms prior to them starting work.
Frequent Monitoring: As long as the employee doesn’t have a fever or other symptoms COVID-19 related, they should self-monitor under the supervision of their employer.
Wear a Mask: The employee should wear an approved face mask or a face covering (in the event of a shortage) at all times while in the workplace for 14 days after last exposure.
Social Distancing: The employee should maintain 6ft of distance and social distancing while performing work duties.
Disinfection and Cleaning: Clean and disinfect all areas including offices, bathrooms, common areas, shared electronic equipment, kitchen appliances, water coolers, etc. routinely.
IF the employee becomes ill at work, they should go home immediately. Any area or equipment in their workspace should be cleaned/disinfected. Employee information on who was in close proximity the day the worker experienced symptoms and 2 days prior should be noted and are considered exposed.
*The guidelines for non-essential workers remains as is and are included (HERE).
NEW : Guidelines for wearing face masks:
Follow the CDC’s latest updates regarding recommendations for using face masks: new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. See more about how to slow the spread of COVID-19 using face masks here.
NEW : CDC added six symptoms to its COVID-19 list
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added six symptoms to its covid-19 list, suggesting health experts are learning more about the growing number of ways physicians see the virus affecting patients. Issues that could appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus are:
• Repeated shaking with chills
• Muscle pain
• Sore throat
• New loss of taste or smell
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, dry cough and breathing issues.
COVID-19 can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets and countertops. If surfaces are dirty, clean them - use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Full information on how to disinfect found here.
- Wear a facemask if you are sick. You should wear a facemask when you are around other people.
- Have a supply of food staples and household supplies like laundry detergent and bathroom items, and diapers if you have small children.
- Make sure you have health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes and vitamins.
- Know how your local public health agency will share information in your community and stay informed.
- Learn how your children’s school or daycare, and your workplace will handle a possible outbreak. Create a plan in the event of any closings, event cancellations or postponements. If you care for older adults or children, plan and prepare for caring for them, should they or you become sick?
- Help family members and neighbors get prepared and share the safety messaging with those who may not have access to it.
- Call your doctor immediately if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms.
