Employee Health Screening Rules
The revised Health Screening Policy v3 goes into effect on Tuesday, June 16, at 12:01 a.m.
The Health Screening Policy revisions include:
- Replacement of first- and second-hand reporting with a requirement to report close contacts (defined as employees or contractors who have been within 6 feet of a COVID positive or probable case for at least 15 minutes).
- Addition of a new phone number which supervisors and District Representatives are required to use when reporting positive, symptomatic, or close contact cases reported by employees or contractors.
These policy revisions refine our process for gathering important information from employees or contractors who are infected with the virus, are displaying symptoms related to the virus, and who have had close contact with infected individuals. This information is critical in helping us make informed decisions that help prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our organization and in our communities.
The policy applies to all Grant PUD employees and contractors and subcontractors working at or on District facilities, properties, or field projects where Grant PUD employees work or the contractors and subcontractors interact with members of the public on Grant PUD's behalf.
|Grant PUD has developed its policy based on guidelines from
Johns Hopkins University and the Centers for Disease Control.
