May 20: Employees Notifying Mason of Potential Positive COVID-19 Cases
May 20, 2020
Employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 must notify Mason by completing the university’s secure COVID-19 Contact Form. Benefits will contact the employee after the COVID-19 Contact Form is submitted to collect additional information that is required to determine next steps. Mason’s Environmental Health and Safety Office may contact the employee if they determine additional information is needed. Timely responses are requested to ensure the continued safety and wellness of the employee as well as the Mason community. All medical information employees share is considered confidential.
- Notification guidelines for employees who have tested positive for COVID-19, have been tested but don’t have results yet, or have symptoms.
- Guidelines for students, faculty, staff, and contractors for guidance on getting tested, where to go for care, and returning to campus.
If the employee is unable to complete the form, supervisors should complete the COVID-19 Contact Form on their employee’s behalf. Please respect employee privacy by keeping any medical information an employee shares confidential. Please share these guidelines with employees who notify you of their positive COVID-19 diagnosis and advise them to complete the COVID-19 Contact Form. Please do not contact other departments or individuals to report the positive diagnosis or to attempt contact tracing.
If you have questions about the information in this email, please contact email@example.com.
