One at One: Notifying Employees of COVID-19 Exposure
Posted April 9, 2020
Whether an employer has an obligation to inform other employees that a co-employee has tested positive for COVID-19?
Yes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) recommends that if an employee is confirmed or diagnosed with COVID-19, the employer must notify applicable employees of their potential exposure and advise these employees to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. However, the employer must not disclose the name of the contagious employee pursuant to applicable federal and state laws regarding the confidentiality of an employee’s health information.
