COVID-19 Reporting Instructions for Employees

DO NOT report a third-hand exposure

All or most of us have likely had a third-hand exposure – contact with someone who had contact with a third party who had contact with a fourth party who may be showing symptoms (example a friend of a friend of a friend). Do not report this type of exposure.

DO report: 

1. First-hand exposure

  • You have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • You are showing symptoms that may be COVID-19, including a dry cough, fever and shortness of breath. (See health screening policy here.)
  • You are exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • You have had first-hand exposure to someone that may be showing symptoms of COVID-19.

2. Second-hand exposure:

  • Someone in your home has had direct contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 or is showing symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have had first- or second-hand exposure:

  1. Do not report to work or immediately leave work and contact your supervisor if exposure becomes known while at work. Work from home under quarantine if possible. See quarantine guidelines here. (Look under the section titled "Pre-Work Health Screening Requirement.)
