RESPONDING TO CONFIMRED COVID-19 CASES

RESPONDING TO CONFIRMED CASES OF COVID-19

If an employee or participant is confirmed to be infected with COVID-19, their supervisor should immediately notify Chili Bowl Management; Management will work with Tulsa Health Department to execute the appropriate steps.

Workers must notify their supervisor and stay home from work if they have symptoms of acute respiratory illness consistent with COVID-19 – such as fever, cough, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or shortness of breath – that is not explained by another medical or allergic condition.

SYMPTOMATIC WORKERS

If a worker exhibits symptoms of acute respiratory illness upon arrival to work, or becomes sick during the day, their supervisor must separate them from other workers and patrons and send them home or to a designated isolation area immediately if they are not able to go home at that time. Isolation areas include the following:

West Event Conference Room

In the event an employee is isolated in any area with symptoms; the area will be disinfected immediately prior to any future utilization.

DOCUMENTATION

The supervisor should document the circumstances of the worker’s illness to help with contact tracing, as applicable.

CONTACT WITH COVID-19 POSITIVE OR SYMPTOMATIC INDIVIDUALS

Because one can carry COVID-19 with no symptoms at all, anyone who has been in close contact with a person known to have had the virus, or whose family or friends show signs of exposure, should behave as if they are infected, isolate themselves, and contact their physician.

RETURNING TO WORK

Workers with symptoms of acute respiratory illness associated with COVID-19 may return to work after (a) home isolation for 14 days since their first symptoms or positive test, and (b) medical authorization.

RESPONDING TO CONFIRMED CASES OF COVID-19

If a worker is confirmed to be infected with COVID-19, their supervisor should immediately:

Determine what areas of the venue were visited, used, or impacted by the infected worker (the “Impacted Areas”).

Assess whether the worker’s role put them within six feet (two meters) of other workers or patrons, including whether their duties create specific transmission risks such as food handling, bartending, or ticket checking.

Work with the local health department to determine which other workers had close contact with the infected worker (the “Impacted Workers”).

Notify the Impacted Workers that they may have had contact with an infected worker and encourage them to monitor their health and report any concerns to their healthcare provider, do not provide information about the infected worker to potential impacted workers.

Any worker who tests positive for COVID-19 should remain in home isolation after 10 days have passed since symptom onset and 24-hours fever free without the use of fever reducing medication and overall symptoms have improved. If an individual does not have any symptoms then at least 10 days have passed since they took a COVID-19 test.

The worker should follow Tulsa Health Department and CDC guidance.

Impacted Workers who have been in close contact with a person who tests positive, but who are not presently symptomatic or suffering a fever greater than 100.4 F / 38.0 C, should not come to work for 14 days after their last close contact, and quarantine themselves. During quarantine, they should watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

SYMPTOMATIC VISITORS

If a visitor exhibits symptoms of acute respiratory illness they will be required to leave property; in the event they are not able to leave immediately, they will be confined to the designated isolation areas. Isolation areas include the following for visitors:

West Event Conference Room

In the event a visitor is isolated in any area with symptoms; the area will be disinfected immediately prior to any future utilization.
