Employees with COVID-19 symptoms required to stay home, call Occupational Health hotline

COVID-19 infections among WashU Med employees have risen in recent weeks, with nearly all related to exposures at home or in the community. All employees reporting to campus should continue using the online screening tool daily to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. These symptoms can be mild and seemingly benign, particularly among vaccinated individuals who become infected. If you are experiencing any symptoms, you are required to:

  • Stay home. Leave your workplace if your symptoms develop at work.
  • Begin isolating immediately.
  • Notify your supervisor.
  • Call the COVID-19 Exposure/Illness Hotline at 314-362-5056 to arrange for testing, and follow the instructions you receive.
  • If you test positive, you must isolate for 10 days from symptom onset.
