If an employee is sick, it is essential that supervisors express concern for the employee’s well-being and advise the employee to stay home and isolate. Supervisors should advise the employee to contact by phone their primary care provider with any medical concerns, or if they are seriously ill, contact by phone an emergency medical care provider. Employees should get tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms.
If the employee does not have a primary care health care provider, they can contact the local county health department in the community in which they reside for referrals. Employees who have been on-site at an OSU location and have tested positive for COVID-19 are required to inform their supervisor.
