COVID-19: Information for Businesses/Employers and Community Leaders
Businesses should exclude COVID-19 cases and assess and manage contacts as outlined in:
- IDPH COVID-19 Outbreak Reporting for Non-High-Risk Settings, including K-12 Schools, Day Cares, Workplaces, Colleges, and Businesses, Guidance (Effective January 1, 2023)
- What to Do If You Were Exposed to COVID-19 | CDC
- Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19 | CDC
- Understanding Exposure Risks | CDC
- CDC - Stay Up to Date with Your Vaccines
- CDC - COVID-19 Hospital Admission Level
- CDC - Cleaning, Disinfecting, and Ventilation for COVID-19
- OSHA - Protecting Workers: Mitigating and Preventing COVID-19
Businesses and other non-high-risk settings should continue to track COVID-19 cases internally and review the IDPH COVID-19 Outbreak Reporting for Non-High-Risk Settings, including K-12 Schools, Day Cares, Workplaces, Colleges, and Businesses, Guidance (Effective January 1, 2023)
Non-high-risk settings are encouraged to notify local health departments if assistance is needed to manage the outbreak/cluster. Notification and Case Reporting should also occur if something unusual is occurring (e.g., burden of disease in the non-high-risk setting is greater than expected relative to community activity). Businesses/employers should ensure that notification is sent to identified close contacts when an exposure has occurred in the facility.
If you need assistance in reviewing and implementing guidance, please email [email protected] or call (630) 682-7400.
