A co-worker tested positive for COVID-19, should I be concerned?

If you have been in close contact with your co-worker: You should self-quarantine away from others for 14 days since the last day you had contact with that person. Your employer might contact you with further instructions. We will call you to discuss your risk and provide quarantine information. If you develop symptoms of respiratory illness, and are concerned about your health, please call your healthcare provider.

If you have not been in close contact with your co-worker: You should monitor yourself for symptoms of respiratory illness and remember to practice good physical distancing, but quarantine may not required. It is possible that your employer or the Health Department will contact you. You should follow any instructions from your employer and the Health Department carefully. If you develop any symptoms, you should self-isolate at home and contact a healthcare provider if you are concerned about your health. Remember to follow appropriate precautions for cleaning your work area, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette.
