Employees will be paid for their regularly scheduled time by the City while test results are pending. If the test is positive, a Workers’ Compensation claim will be filed to cover lost wages. If the test result is negative, the employee will return to work. The nuances of these cases will be handled by HR and the EOC Director on a case by case basis depending on the circumstances. If an employee believes they have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 at work, they should contact HR and your department director immediately and complete a Workers’ Compensation claim form.
