COVID-19 is an illness that spreads mainly from person-to-person through close contact from respiratory droplets of someone with COVID-19. The respiratory droplets can travel up to two metres / six feet when we cough, sneeze or talk.
It's possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes. This new coronavirus can survive on plastic and stainless steel surfaces for up to 72 hours.
The guidance outlines minimum requirements. Businesses are encouraged to create their own internal policies and procedures to ensure the health and safety of clients and staff are maintained.
Recommendations for employee health screening and attendance at your place of business:
If self-isolating, the duration of your self-isolation will be for a minimum of 14 days. For some, self-isolation will last much longer. This is based on your personal health situation. Guidance will be provided by your health care provider or by a public health professional monitoring your case.
For other illnesses, or if an employee has tested negative for COVID-19, they shouldn't attend work until they are symptom-free for at least 24 hours.
Full and accurate client details must be recorded. If the client refuses, services cannot be completed.
