Any employee who calls in sick, presents symptoms or informs management they had close contact with someone with symptoms, will take the self-assessment. The employee will be instructed to follow any recommendations given by the tool, including being tested and self-isolating.
If anyone shows symptoms in the workplace, they should return home and self-isolate immediately. If they cannot leave immediately, they should be isolated until they are able to leave. The designated isolation zone is the rear entrance to the building.
In the event that someone is suspected, or confirmed of having COVID-19 at Cait’s Cafe, contact tracing data including employee schedules, dates and times of guest interaction, addresses, and contact information may be shared with Public Health officials upon request.
Employees who have close contact with someone known to have COVID-19 should self-isolate for 14 days. If they do not develop symptoms, they may usually return to work and other activities 14 days after their last contact with the case.
An employee with COVID-19 symptoms should self-isolate for at least 10 days from when the symptoms started.
If a worker who has symptoms receives a negative COVID-19 test result, they may usually return to work before 10 days if they do not have a fever and their symptoms are getting better.
Employees exposed in the workplace will be notified and be given information about the date and time of the potential exposure, and where it took place. No information will be given that would identify the infectious person.
Occupationally acquired illnesses are covered under WSIB, and all confirmed cases of COVID-19 for Cait’s Cafe employees will be reported.
