Per CDC recommendations, employees who appear to have acute respiratory illness symptoms (i.e. cough, shortness of breath) upon arrival to work or become sick during the day will be separated from other employees and be sent home immediately.
Partners who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are required to stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever, signs of a fever (100° F ) or greater using a forehead thermometer, and showing no signs of symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. Tylenol, cough suppressants).
Partners should immediately notify their supervisor and stay home if they are sick.
Partners who have someone in their home test positive for COVID-19 are required to stay home and self-quarantine themselves for a minimum of 10 days, and we recommend they get tested.
These Partners can return prior to 10 days if:
1) they receive a negative test result and;
2) 10 days have passed since the family member began exhibiting symptoms and;
3) 24 hours have passed since the family member had symptoms without medication.
In order to return to work, the Partner will need clearance from their Safety Manager or HR Business Partner. Should the Partner be required to stay home due to in-home exposure, they may use PPT or apply to TDCares for assistance.
Exposure without Symptoms:
Positive Test Result:
Quarantine can end on day 7 with a negative test result (The specimen may be collected and tested within 48 hours before the time of planned quarantine discontinuation, but quarantine cannot be discontinued earlier than after Day 7.)
If any Partner is diagnosed with COVID-19, they should follow their healthcare provider’s recommendations as well as notify their HR Business Partner. TD will inform fellow Partners of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
TDIndustries is committed to the safety of all our Partners, both internally and externally. The above action plan is consistent with the CDC’s Interim Guidance plan.
TD’s leadership is committed to providing the best work environment possible for all Partners and jobsites. These prudent preventative measures will serve us well to minimize risk to all our Partners and their families.
