  2. Health care workers with confirmed symptomatic COVID-19 should self quarantine and remain out of work.
  3. Health care workers with known exposure to someone with COVID-19 should notify their supervisor immediately. COVID testing should occur within four to seven days if a health care worker is exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19.
