We have consulted with the CMOH on this question. He has advised that someone in close contact with a denturist clinic staff member has experienced fever or cough or two (2) of the other identified symptoms:
1. Employee can go to work at the denturist clinic, but self-monitor **.
2. If symptoms present, employee must call 811 and arrange for a test and self-isolate until results come in.
IF someone in close contact with a denturist office staff member has tested positive for COVID-19: 1. Employee cannot go to work as anyone identified as a close contact of a known COVID case has to themselves be tested and isolate for 14 days.
** With respect to employees going to work and self-monitoring for symptoms; this is the minimum standard. Denture clinics can have a more stringent office policy whereby an employee remains at home until the test results are known.
