Workplace COVID-19 Case Reporting Tool

This tool is for employers to notify Ottawa Public Health when they become aware of two or more people in their workplace who have tested positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period. Your responses will be kept strictly confidential. 

Introduction

Outbreak Assessment

Now that we have determined that there are employees who tested positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period, we need to determine if they were infectious while they were at work.

Symptomatic Case: A person with COVID-19 is contagious from 48 hours before symptoms start until the end of their self-isolation period, usually 10 days after symptoms began.

Asymptomatic Case: If an individual has no symptoms, they are considered contagious from 48 hours before the date they were tested until 10 days after the test date.

Example: If an employee develops a fever and cough on April 4 and tests positive for COVID-19, they would be considered contagious between April 2 and April 14.
