A NOTE FROM SIOUXLAND
DISTRICT HEALTH DEPARTMENT

The current challenges being presented by the COVID-19 outbreak are forcing all of us as businesses to review our approach when giving guidance to employees. This is especially true for those that have been involved in travel.

There are employers that are telling employees that have just recently returned from travel, both domestic and international, not to return to work without a return to work notice from their provider stating they do not have COVID-19. This is something that is not possible for the provider to give. With the limited number of tests available, they will not be administered unless the employee meets some very distinct criteria and no asymptomatic people should be tested. If they do have symptoms and are eligible for testing, it is a minimum of 4 – 5 business days before any results are available to their provider. Symptomatic individuals shouldn’t be at work anyway.

Click here for some points for you to consider in your decisions related to travel.


Check the Siouxland Chamber Facebook Page for upcoming informational conversations with local experts providing guidance on Coronavirus-related topics.
