Centers for Disease Control Releases New Guidance for Essential Workforce

  • Critical Infrastructure “essential” workers who have had an exposure but remain asymptomatic may be allowed to continue work in select instances.  CDC is now recommending that businesses and organization disregard recommended 14-day quarantines for essential workers only as a last resort and only in limited circumstances, such as when cessation of operation of a facility may cause serious harm or danger to public health or safety.  If exposed workers do remain on the job, the following mitigation strategies should be implemented: 
    • Pre-Screen: Employers should measure the employee’s temperature and assess symptoms prior to them starting work. Ideally, temperature checks should happen before the individual enters the facility.
    • Regular Monitoring: As long as the employee doesn’t have a fever or symptoms, they should self-monitor under the supervision of their employer’s occupational health program.
    • Wear a Mask: The employee should wear a face mask at all times while in the workplace for 14 days after last exposure. Employers can issue facemasks or can approve employees’ supplied cloth face coverings in the event of shortages.
    • Social Distance: The employee should maintain 6 feet spacing and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace.
    • Disinfect and Clean work spaces: Clean and disinfect all areas such as offices, bathrooms, common areas, and shared electronic equipment routinely.
    • If the exposed employee becomes sick during the day, they should be sent home immediately and treated as a positive COVID-19 case.

Centers for Disease Control Expands Definition of "Close Contact"

  • The CDC updated its definition of a "close contact" for purposes of recommending self-quarantine or additional monitoring for the development of COVID-19 symptoms.  A close contact is now defined as "Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated."  This means individual exposures added together over a 24-hour period (e.g., three 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes) are considered a clost contact.  Close contacts are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days, avoiding public places, the workplace, and other people, and monitor for the development of COVID-19 symptoms. They are also advised to test for COVID-19 as many cases are asymptomatic. 
  • Other factors to consider when defining close contact include proximity (closer distance likely increases exposure risk), the duration of exposure (longer exposure time likely increases exposure risk), whether the infected individual has symptoms (the period around onset of symptoms is associated with the highest levels of viral shedding), if the infected person was likely to generate respiratory aerosols (e.g., was coughing, singing, shouting), and other environmental factors (crowding, adequacy of ventilation, whether exposure was indoors or outdoors).  At this time, CDC advised that determination of close contact is the same whether or not either party was using face coverings, respirators or other PPE.
  • The updated definition is available at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/contact-tracing/contact-tracing-plan/appendix.html
