The PHA has published a new Short Guide by way of a flowchart called ‘COVID-19 in a business setting: A Quick Guide for Employers.’

This new Guide provides an overview of what businesses should do if someone tests positive and helpfully confirms that there is no need to close if one person tests positive. It also sets out guidance for what happens if there is more than one positive test linked to the workplace.

Many employers had trouble ascertaining what the recommended guidelines were. This Guide is helpful in explaining what should be done and provides businesses with the confidence that they are dealing with the situation correctly.
