Workplace Guidelines in response to COVID-19

MER has established workplace guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak:   

 If MER is notified that an employee has come in “close contact” (within 6 feet per CDC guidelines) with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, MER should:

a.      Identify when the employee believes they came into contact with the confirmed positive individual (to identify a timeline of potential workplace contamination)

b.      Require that employee avoid coming to work until 15 days after the identified exposure; the employee should immediately leave the workplace and begin self-quarantining (per CDC)

c.       Ask the employee to monitor their health and follow CDC guidelines if they begin to experience flu-like symptoms (specifically: fever, cough, shortness of breath per CDC)

d.      Ask the employee to communicate to the Company if their health condition changes and/or if they’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19

e.      Identify which MER employees (if any) that individual came in contact with

f.        Identify which areas in MER’s workplace (if any) that the individual came in contact with; perform cleaning procedures per MER’s Bloodborne Pathogen Program (specific to COVID-19) for all areas where the infected employee has come in contact

2.      If MER is notified that an employee has been diagnosed with COVID-19, MER should:

a.      Identify when the employee believes they contracted the virus (to identify a timeline of potential workplace contamination)

b.      Require that employee avoid coming to work until 15 days after the diagnosis

c.       Identify which MER employees (if any) that individual came in contact with and communicate the confirmed diagnosis

d.      All employees who came in close contact with the confirmed positive individual should be immediately asked to leave the workplace and begin self-quarantining (per CDC) and monitoring

                                                  1.      Follow section 1 for all individuals who came in close contact with the employee

e.      Identify which areas in MER’s workplace (if any) that the individual came in contact with; perform cleaning procedures per MER’s Bloodborne Pathogen Program (specific to COVID-19) for all areas where the infected employee has come in contact

f.        Draft a general communication to organization re: positive diagnosis of an employee

3.      If an employee is showing symptoms of acute respiratory illness (but no known exposure), MER should:

a.      Ask the employee to leave the workplace and not return until they are no longer symptomatic for at least 24 hours

b.      Ask the employee to monitor their health and follow CDC guidelines if their symptoms become worse or if they begin to experience flu-like symptoms

c.       Ask the employee to communicate to the Company if their health condition changes and/or if they’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19

3/11/2020 Business Travel Policy (effective until further notice.)

The health and safety of our employees is our number one priority. As such, we have established a temporary travel policy to be followed until further notice. Employees shall seek written approval to travel from their manager. Managers will follow the guideline that nonessential travel will not be allowed. Travel that is already booked or may be considered essential will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This policy covers travel that requires any mode of transportation other than in a personal (or company) vehicle. Travel beyond 500 miles in a vehicle must be approved by a manager.
