Occupational Health resumes exposure tracing, asymptomatic testing

On Monday, Feb. 7, Occupational Health will resume services which were temporarily paused due to overwhelming demand for COVID-19 testing:

  • Providing close-contact COVID-19 exposure notifications and tracing for employee-to-employee contacts.
  • Testing asymptomatic employees who have had a COVID-19 exposure.

An exposure is defined as being within six feet of a known positive person for 15 minutes or more without proper personal protective equipment. Employees who have been exposed to COVID-19 should call the COVID-19 Exposure/Illness Hotline at 314-362-5056. If you have been exposed or have any symptoms, you may need to be tested or to quarantine/isolate, or both.
