Employer Contact Tracing
With more and more employees returning to the workplace, contact tracing is crucial to not only stop the spread of the coronavirus, but also to protect your company from potential lawsuits.
Our program quickly advises you as to levels of infection and where within the company they’re located, so that you’re able to make informed but rapid decisions as to whether work areas should be shut down, require extra cleaning, require employees to work a staggered schedule, call in temporary workers and more.
What is employer contact tracing?
Identifying who’s recently been within 6 feet of an infected person for 15+ minutes. This disease-control measure helps fight the spread of COVID-19.
How does contact tracing work?
AN EMPLOYEE IS SUSPECTED AND/OR TESTED FOR COVID-19
An AmeriSys nurse assesses the infected employee and provides education and resources on the disease process, emergency measures and quarantine. The nurse assesses the employee’s ability to adequately quarantine by determining their support systems and resources available. The infected worker’s identity remains confidential to protect their privacy.
CONTACTS ARE IDENTIFIED AND AIDED.
A Contact Tracer works closely with the infected employee to learn with whom (s)he has been in close contact during the infectious period. The Tracer notifies those workplace contacts of their potential exposure, providing education regarding medical treatment, quarantine and additional resources. They are also assessed for viral symptoms and given testing resource information.
EMPLOYER IS NOTIFIED.
We notify the employer as to who has been contacted and assessed. Reports show the level of exposure the company is sustaining and what groups are impacted. This helps employers prepare for any temporary staffing that may be needed.
