Handling COVID-19 Positive Cases in the Workplace

Employers must ensure they take all necessary steps to protect the identity of any employee who has tested positive for the coronavirus. Various laws protect against the release of this information. Thus, while employers should inform any affected coworkers of their possible exposure in the workplace, they should not reveal the identity of the employee(s) who tested positive.

Use our Responding to a Positive Coronavirus (COVID-19) Test Checklist and Contact Tracing in the Workplace Form to assist with properly handling the situation.
