Our response to a case of COVID-19 at the workplace is as flows in this step-by-step summary of actions to takeis:

  1. Keep others away from the confirmed or suspected case. Talk to and assess the person concerned; if they need urgent medical help, call 000 immediately.
  2. If the person is at your premises when symptoms emerge, assess the situation and risks.  Talk to the person about your concerns and next steps, and seek government health advice.
  3. If well enough, ask the person to go home, and seek medical advice and testing for COVID-19, and self-quarantine until a result is returned. Ensure the person has safe transport to get home; if not, you may need to arrange for a taxi.
  4. Close the premises, ask all patrons and unnecessary staff to leave and arrange for a full environmental and disinfection clean (refer to 6). Open doors and windows to increase airflow.
