What if you are sick or test positive but have to work?
While at work, the health care worker (HCW) should adhere to universal masking recommendations, maintain physical distancing (remaining greater than 2m/6 ft from others) except when providing direct care, and performing meticulous hand hygiene.
These measures at work are required to continue until non-test based clearance (or test based clearance if required by employer/Occupational Health and Safety).
The HCW should ideally be cohorted to provide care for COVID-19 positive patients/residents if possible. The HCW on work self-isolation should not work in multiple locations.
