Employee Guidance for COVID-19 Exposure or Contraction

Unsure what to do if you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19? First, contact your health care provider for guidance. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call the King County COVID-19 medical information call center between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. at 206-477-3977.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, per Washington State Department of Health (WA DOH), stay home, except to get medical care. 

If you, a member of your household or someone with whom you have had close contact (within 6 feet for 10 minutes) tests positive for COVID-19, you must notify your supervisor and stay home.  Let your supervisor know the date you tested positive and the date of possible exposure to co-workers.

If you are a supervisor and one of your team members has notified you that they have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed co-workers, please gather the date of the positive test, the date of possible exposure and the names of the employees who may have been exposed. Share this information immediately with Elaine Irons-Hunt and Mio Yamakoshi in the Health Services Department at healthsvcs@highlineschools.org

To discontinue home isolation, follow the guidelines from WA DOH or as directed by your healthcare provider.

For additional guidance on what to do if you have been exposed, what to do if you have symptoms, or what to do if you have a confirmed case, please visit the WA DOH website. When in doubt, contact your healthcare provider.

For additional questions, email Health Services at healthsvcs@highlineschools.org.
