USPS releases Close COVID-19 Contact Investigations Overview

When an employee reports a positive case, the OHNA contacts the local or state health department to determine if they will conduct the workplace close contact investigation of positive COVID-19 cases. Because this infection is a reportable case, it is their legal jurisdiction and responsibility to conduct these investigations.

See the April 20, 2020 memorandum to see typical steps most health departments take when conducting the close contact investigations. (pdf)
