Employees who are immunosuppressed are at greater risk and fall into the high-risk category. It is important to put safeguards in place with any high-risk employees. Some example measures include:
- Placing high-risk employees in areas that limit potential exposure to COVID-19 as much as possible
- Providing appropriate PPE
- Allowing them to self-quarantine if they so desire
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
