What will CMSI do immediately?
Our project is embedded with the client. Whose plan should I follow?
Embedded jobsites like healthcare facilities or education campuses need to understand the protocol of the client and follow whichever protocol is the more stringent. Talk with your CMSI Team to determine any additional steps to this plan.
I heard this virus is easily passed. How should that change our routine?
When gathering in large groups, like job planning, safety meetings, lunch hours, etc., individuals will be encouraged to be at a minimum 6’ apart.
Should my employee wear facemasks?
The CDC has stated that masks are more appropriate for individuals who are sick than for those who are well. If you want to wear a face mask, feel free to do so.
I work for CMSI and I’m feeling sick. Should I go to work?
No! Anyone who is sick should stay home. Anyone who is clearly sick will be required to leave work and either go home, or seek medical attention. Do not return to CMSI until you are fever free for 24 hours without medication.
What if I come into contact with someone that has a confirmed case of Coronavirus?
Do not come to work. Notify the General Manager as soon as possible. The General Manger will convey any and all necessary information.
I’m travelling outside of the U.S. Is there anything I need to do?
Any CMSI employee who travels outside the U.S. must advise the General Manger before travelling and follow the CDC guidelines related to self-quarantine upon return. (This is currently 14 days after travel to High Risk – Level 3 countries. Level 1 countries are currently not required to quarantine but monitor their health for 14 days.) A full list can be hound here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
I’m coughing, breathing is hard and or I have a fever. What should I do?
Do not come to work. Anyone who becomes sick with an acute respiratory illness suspected to be COVID-19 should go to a medical facility. It is recommended you contact the medical facility in advance of arriving, so they can prepare for your arrival and provide you directions to follow upon arriving. Immediately notify the General Manager if anyone within CMSI, or if another individual is noticed becoming sick with a respiratory illness suspected of COVID-19. The General Manager will convey any and all necessary information.
I tested positive for COVID-19. Now what?
Do not come to work. Let the General Manger know right away. Any known company employee, or a known employee of a CMSI vendor or customer who tests positive for COVID-19, or who has been exposed to an individual who tests positive, within two weeks of working around such individuals or on a job site should notify the General Manager. The General Manager will convey any and all necessary information.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19, or who has been exposed to an individual who tests positive, will be required to follow CDC’s guidance related to self-quarantine (currently 14 days) and will need to provide a physician’s release to return to work.
