When someone is diagnosed with Covid-19, a Public Health Nurse usually interviews that person. Some of the questions include asking where they work and where they have been. This helps us find anyone they may have been in close contact with.
Anyone that has been in close contact with the person infected will get a direct phone call from a Public Health Nurse. The nurse will share the nature of the exposure and precautions that need to be taken.
Sometimes employers will choose to notify all employees that someone who works for the organization was recently diagnosed with Covid-19. Unless you receive a direct phone call from a Public Health Nurse, you are not deemed a close contact of the infected person.
Regardless of known exposure and confirmed cases, the best way to prevent COVID-19 is to avoid exposure to the virus by practicing frequent hand washing, sanitizing surfaces frequently, washing your hands, avoiding crowds and social distancing. And wearing a face mask when you’re out and about is now recommended by the Center for Disease Control and the FDA.
