I have an employee who was diagnosed with COVID-19? What should I do next?

You should let your employees know that they may have been exposed to COVID-19. Do not identify the person with COVID-19. Make sure your employees are advised of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and to stay home and get tested if they show symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Employers should know the relevant laws and guidance for reopening their business. Full guidance is available at
  • Employees (non-health care) who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 should not return to work until release from isolation criteria is met.
