Health Department Develops Guidance for Essential Staff Working During COVID-19

The Lake County Health Department has developed guidance for employers currently operating to protect staff and customers’ health: 

  • Staff who have a fever or respiratory symptoms of cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath prior to any shift should stay home and notify their supervisor. 
  • Screen all staff at the beginning of each shift for fever and respiratory symptoms. 
  • Staff should report to their supervisor if anyone in their home is symptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19. 
  • All staff should practice social distancing. 

More detailed guidelines and other resources for employers can be found on the Health Department’s website: https://www.lakecountyil.gov/4412/Information-for-Specific-Groups.
