ShiftMed is checking-in with each of it's facilities on a daily basis to see if the facility has been "exposed" to COVID-19. If we find that a facility has been "exposed" to COVID-19 we are taking the following steps:
Doing our best to track down the level of exposure and level of risk for all ShiftMed employee who might have been working during an exposure period
If we find that a ShiftMed employee was exposed or at risk of COVID-19 during this time, we will be placing them on a 72 hour medical suspension to evaluate if they develop symptoms. Consult a medical professional first. We will be checking-in with employees during this time to monitor symptoms. If you do not develop symptoms, you are eligible to return to work with wearing a surgical mask at all times for the next 7 days. Should you develop symptoms, you will be on medical suspension until you have 3 days of no symptoms and it has been a least 7 days since symptoms first appeared.
All medical suspension scenarios are covered in the following article - here.
