Employees Who Tested Positive for COVID-19 or Have Been Exposed
Are you grappling with the issue of an employee who tested positive for COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive? You're not alone. Our Ask WRA Team has received quite a few questions from restaurant operators about this topic.
Here are some great resources that offer guidance on how to handle the situation:
- FDA Guidance
- CDC Guidance
- CDC Business FAQ
- Dane County Public Health Department Guidance
- PHMDC Q&A
- WDHS Guidance
NOTE: Local health departments are allowed to impose stricter requirements (Dane County for instance has stricter guidance). You should check with your local health department to make sure they do not have stricter requirements that you need to follow.
KEEP IN MIND: In some cases, your employee may qualify for up to two weeks of required paid leave under the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
