Interim Guidance for Implementing Safety Practices for Critical Infrastructure Workers Who May Have Had Exposure to a Person with Suspected or  Confirmed COVID-19 (Updated April 8)

  • The employee should wear a face mask at all times while in the workplace for 14 days after last exposure.
  • Information on persons who had contact with the ill employee during the time the      employee had symptoms and 2 days prior to symptoms should be compiled. 
  • Others  at the facility with close contact within 6 feet of the employee during this time would be considered exposed.

How to disinfect (Updated April 1):

  • Close off areas visited by the ill persons. Open outside doors and windows and      use ventilating fans to increase air circulation in the area. Wait 24      hours or as long as practical before beginning cleaning and disinfection.
  • Cleaning staff should clean and disinfect all areas such as offices, bathrooms, common areas, shared electronic equipment like tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines used by the ill persons, focusing especially on frequently touched surfaces.
  • If it      has been more than 7 days since the person with suspected/confirmed COVID-19 visited or used the facility, additional cleaning and disinfection is not necessary.
