What to Do When an Employee Comes to Work Sick

VU VUMC

If you think the employee has one of the following conditions, ask the employee to wear a surgical face mask and report to Occupational Health as soon as possible.

  • Chicken Pox
  • Whooping Cough (Pertussis)
  • Measles
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pink Eye (mask not needed)

It is recommended that people not be in the workplace when they have a fever and respiratory symptoms. You should let your employees know this recommendation and encourage them to use sick time when appropriate.

If the employee has a minor acute illness they may also visit our Faculty/Staff Express Care. To learn more information on the services offered at the Faculty/Staff Express Care, please visit our page.
