COVID-19 Flowchart

What to do if I think I have, or have been exposed to COVID-19?

*as of Monday, December 21, 2020

I have COVID-19 symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell 

1. Stay home.

2. Contact your supervisor.

3. Supervisor will then contact Occupational Medicine (Occ. Med.) at [email protected] or call 814-863-8492 on your behalf.

4. Occ. Med. will contact you to determine if you have had close contact with other employees & will refer you for contact tracing.

Occ. Med. will also follow-up with your supervisor & notify Absence Mgt. on your behalf

I have tested positive for COVID-19.
I have had CLOSE CONTACT (close contact means you have been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms.
 
I have been NEAR but NOT in CLOSE CONTACT (close contact means you have been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms. No action is needed at this time but monitor yourself for COVID-19 symptoms.
 
 
Occupational Medicine ordered a test based on my symptoms or close contacts & I have tested NEGATIVE for COVID-19.
  1. Occupational Medicine will advise you based on the CDC and Department of Health advice, guidelines, & orders.
     
  2.  If you had your own symptoms, you will be off work for 10 days or until you are symptom free for 24 hours, whichever is longer.
     
  3. If you were another employee’s close contact, you may be off work and in isolation for as long as 14 days.

If you are currently working remotely, please use your best judgement regarding exposure to others and taking time off for illness.

Examples outlined above may require a return to work release.
