EHS Coronavirus / COVID-19 Guidance and Updates

Update

Environmental Health and Safety collaboration to help prevent spread of COVID-19

A team of EHS staff members strives to prevent coronavirus transmission within the campus community while keeping campus operating. EHS works in close partnership with the Occupational Health Program (OHP) regarding employees. OHP notifies EHS when a member of the campus community tests positive for COVID-19, providing key information that launches EHS’s process to assess if any action needs to be taken, such as whether to deep clean for disinfection or close spaces. OHP follows privacy guidelines in its reporting to EHS that allow the university to keep the workplace and co-workers safe while still protecting individual privacy as much as possible. (Download the poster “The Process for Reporting COVID-19" (PDF) for a summary of the process that occurs when an employee has symptoms of COVID-19 or has been tested for COVID-19, regardless of test results.)
