  • One at One: Employees & COVID-19

Today’s Issue:

Whether an employee must self-quarantine after coming into close contact with another employee, or person, who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19?

Answer:

Yes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the New Jersey Department of Health recommend self-quarantine for fourteen days for any individual who has come into close contact with someone who is experiencing symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19. This is recommended even if the individual is not experiencing any symptoms or is not sick with COVID-19.
