What do I ask my staff to do when they report to me that they have been exposed to someone who has been tested positive?
Ask them to consult a doctor and get tested or ask them to self quarantine until symptoms appear and then get tested or just wait for symptoms then get test. Please advise which option is correct.
Thank you for your question.
First and foremost, I understand your concerns regarding your staff who had been exposed with positive case of coronavirus since there’s an outbreak of coronavirus.
So now you wanted to know the next appropriate step.
Before we can move to the next step, we should assess your risk profile. Here, I include the link, Assess Your Risk. At the end of the test, you will receive a result and please act accordingly.
