I was at a location the WA Government has notified was visited by a confirmed case and need to be tested and self-quarantine. What does that mean for my work situation?
- Visit the HealthyWA website for a list of locations visited by confirmed cases if you are unsure if you need to be tested.
- If you need to be tested, please contact your line manager and advise ECU by submitting a Notification of confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 form to provide advice of your self-quarantine situation. You then need to advise the University of the test results by submitting a Notification of outcome of COVID-19 test results form.
- Please submit a new notification each time you are tested and receive a result.
- The WA Government has advised that if you are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms or were at a potential exposure location, you need to get tested at a COVID clinic and self-quarantine until you receive a negative test result. If you develop symptoms, even if you've already tested negative, you must get tested again.
- You will be advised by the Department of Health if you require additional testing or are required to self-isolate/quarantine and must follow these directions.
- Your line manager will discuss options available for you to work from home, should this be possible.
- ECU has developed resources on the support available to staff, such as temporary work arrangements, leave, remote work and resources for supervisors and managers.
- For advice on leave arrangements, please contact your HR Business Partner.
- The Australian Department of Health has this advice for home quarantine and isolation practices, including what to do if you begin to have symptoms while in quarantine, and appropriate precautions for people living with someone in self-isolation/quarantine.
