For other potentially impacted workers/on-site personnel, the following steps should be taken as appropriate based on the exposure assessment and as determined by management:
- Supervisor to assess level of close contact(**) per CDC definition and the Exposure Risk Assessment Guide of this Plan. If:
- RECOGNIZED EXPOSURE: impacted employees notified, sent home for 14 days, asked to self-monitor, contact medical provider, and avoid contact with high risk/vulnerable individuals.
- UNRECOGNIZED POSSIBLE EXPOSURE: continue general practices and continue to monitor for symptoms, follow appropriate social distancing and prevention guidelines
- HR follows up on affected worker status as appropriate.
- Determine jobsite actions, e.g. temporary partial/ full closure (final determination made by Region and Division Management and C19 Task Force).
- As appropriate, notification sent to Client, Subcontractors, Vendors, and other Partners (utilizing provided templates).
- As appropriate, HR to send notification to affected worker or others outlining actions taken and/or requirements to return.
- A Risk Alert should be filed by the end of shift.
(*) ) Data are insufficient to precisely define the duration of time that constitutes a prolonged exposure of 15 minutes; see prolonged period of time definition in this plan. Brief interactions are less likely to result in transmission; however, symptoms and the type of interaction (e.g. did the person cough directly into the face of the individual?) remain important.
(**) ) Data are limited to define close contact. Factors to consider when defining close contact include proximity, the duration of exposure (e.g. longer exposure time likely increases exposure risk), whether the individual has symptoms (e.g. coughing likely increases exposure risk) and whether the individual was wearing a face covering (which can efficiently block respiratory secretions from contaminating others and the environment).
