UPDATES REGARDING STAFF TESTING

In the event that a staff member at Good Earth tests positive for COVID-19, there is a defined process that we follow.

As soon as we are notified of the positive test we:

  • Conduct a detailed phone interview with the staff member to understand when they started experiencing symptoms, and if they’ve have had close contact with any other Good Earth staff members both at work and outside of work. We ask them to think carefully about these details, going back to 48 hours before they started feeling symptoms, or, if they did not feel symptoms, 48 hours before their last worked shift
  • Work directly with a Marin Public Health nurse on our COVID-19 response. She guides us on how to respond based on Public Health guidelines and the specifics of each situation
  • Ask any staff members who were identified as having close contact with the staff member who tested positive to self-isolate for 14 days and get tested
  • Notify all staff members in the company that a staff member has tested positive
  • Update this page to reflect that a staff member has tested positive. We try to do this within 24 hours, but there can be a delay if we have recently conducted a large testing event
