COVID-19 in 19: Someone Just Tested Positive for COVID-19: Response Plans for Employers, Landlords and Tenants

June 2, 2020

As part of our continuing series of 19-minute teleconferences on the impacts of COVID-19, lawyers with BCLP outlined best practices for employers, tenants, and landlords to use when responding to a potential COVID-19 exposure in the workplace.

In addition to analyzing the importance of drafting an incident response plan, topics addressed included best practices for:

  • isolating and identifying potentially exposed individuals;
  • disinfecting workspaces and property;
  • returning impacted individuals to the workplace; and
  • reporting/providing notice to impacted workers, tenants, landlords, and the public.
