What can I do to prevent the spread of the virus?

There are steps you can take to minimize your exposure to illness:

o    Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others.

o    Wash your hands often and vigorously with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

o    Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

o    Avoid contact with people who are sick.

o    Wear a cloth face covering when going out in public.

o    Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.

o    Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

What should I do if I show symptoms of COVID-19?

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath) at work, notify your manager immediately that you need to leave the workplace. Immediately contact your health care provider to get guidance on next steps.

You should immediately begin at-home isolation, and next steps should be made in accordance with guidance from health care professionals.

If I stay home after exhibiting symptoms, do I need to take leave?

Please contact your supervisor or HR to determine your leave options.
