How to manage confirmed covid-19 cases at workplace?

Updated: Jun 16, 2020

A follow-up plan must be put in place in the event of a confirmed case. Upon being notified of a confirmed case, employers must adopt the following precautionary measures:

  1. Immediately vacate and cordon-off the immediate section of the workplace premises where the confirmed case worked. There is no need to vacate the building or the whole floor if there had been no sustained and close contact with the confirmed case; and

  2. Carry out a thorough cleaning and disinfecting all relevant on-site areas and assets that were exposed to confirmed cases, in accordance to NEA guidelines.

Employers must ensure that the measures above are in place, communicated and explained to employees prior to resuming work.

For worksites with confirmed cases, businesses could be suspended if there are public health grounds to do so.
