What Should You Do When a Resident Has a Confirmed Case of COVID-19?
SITUATION: You just found out that Ann Smith, one of your residents, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in self-isolation for 14 days. You immediately report the case to the local health authorities. You post signs and notices in common areas alerting other residents that a building resident has been confirmed as having COVID-19. You tell maintenance staff who had contact with Ann in the past 48 hours that a resident they recently encountered has COVID-19 and advise them to get tested or go into precautionary self-isolation.
