BUSINESS RESOURCES

Ensuring a safe workplace is crucial to preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Public Health Branch has provided the following resources to support workplaces in creating a safe environment. 

COVID-19 in the Workplace: Information and Reporting for Employers – Provides information on what an employer needs to do when an employee tests positive as well as links to state guidance, CalOSHA, reporting requirements, local testing, and sick leave.

Return-to-Work Letter: Information for Employers - Information on when employees can return to work, as well as links to state guidance, requirements, local testing, and sick leave. Employees may print this letter and give to their employer.

California enacted legislation AB 685 to put infection prevention regulations in place related to COVID-19. Employers can use the Shared Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT) Reporting Tool to alert Tulare County Public Health of a COVID outbreak in the workplace. The SPOT Intake Form is the first step in the process of reporting COVID-19 exposure details to your local health department. You will have the option to provide basic information about the positive case(s) associated with the exposure (name, contact information, etc.) along with the Intake Form. Access the Shared Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT) HERE.
